ANZAC Day

On ANZAC Day, I was in the St Heliers parade with the St Heliers/Glendowie Scout Group.  Our Scout Group has links with St Philip's parish as our 1st Scoutmaster, Sgt Brookfield, was a member of this parish, and several current members have been or still are involved in the Scout Group.  I'm pleased I was involved in the parade because I got to march like a soldier and I was selected to lay a wreath at the Brookfield Memorial.  ANZAC Day is a day on which we remember the dead and those who fought for our country in all wars.  This ANZAC Day was especially important as it was 100yrs since the Gallipoli landings, and people say that Gallipoli brought our nation together.
