This release is of Anzac Day, considered by many in Australia and New Zealand as our most important celebration, remembering those who fell to give us the peace that came after World War I, the Anzac tradition followed both countries through World War II and beyond, at each Dawn Service these words are spoken "They shall not grow old, as we who are left grow old; Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
