No fatigue. The people speak: our Anzac Day matters

No fatigue. The people speak: our Anzac Day matters.

I am fatigued by the build up, the comments from those who know little of real life military service, by the lip service, by the ignorance of facts … but even though I don’t go to services, I did salute the dawn this morning, and I think not only of those who gave the supreme sacrifice, but those who were with them and have lived with the memories of the real life brutality of war.

ANZAC Day

On  ANZAC Day we hear lots about the war on land, but the army would have done a lot of swimming without sailors.

Here’s the Sailor’s version of “In Flanders Field”

In Ocean waves no poppies blow
No crosses stand in ordered row
Their young hearts sleep beneath the wave
The spirited, the good, and the brave,
But stars a constant vigil keep,
For them who lie beneath the deep,
‘Tis true you cannot kneel in prayer,
On a certain spot and think he’s there
But you can to the ocean go
See whitecaps marching row on row;
Know one for him will always ride,
In and out with every tide,
And when your span of life is passed
He’ll meet you at the ‘Captain’s Mast’
And they who mourn on distant shore,
For sailors who will come home no more,
Can dry their tears and pray for these
Who rest beneath the heaving seas,
For stars that shine and winds that blow
And whitecaps marching row on row
And they can never lonely be,
For when they lived
They choose the sea.”

I salute Rear Admiral Parry. He will never be a politician because he deals in honest facts.
