I heard this very song on the radio today Maggi. Poignant indeed! But in our TV news and after all the items about ANZAC Day commemorations, dawn services etc throughout NZ and Australia and at Gallipoli itself, there was an item about and interviews with, several Turkish men who continue a tradition of tending the graves and gardening at the cemetries of the ANZAC soldiers. They do what their fathers and grandfathers did from the earliest days. It was quite moving and these Turkish men quite obviously have a bond with the dead soldiers and the many family members who visit each year from this part of the world.

I expect that there are days like this of remembrance for the Turks, and their lost generation.
Something we might all remember, eh?
