I've been to the ANZAC day services in Gallipoli and it was a moving, but very memorable, experience.
I'd actually volunteered to work there. It just felt right, so today always brings back some strong memories and emotions.

"Lest We Forget"
EDIT: I just found the link to the article I wrote about volunteering. You can find it here.
Last night, the Auckland War Memorial Museum had a light display whilst projecting some unseen footage of NZ troops in WW1. Footage from the troops debarking, landing in Egypt and then in the Western Front. With a soundtrack added, it become rather haunting.
I had a crack at trying to photograph some of the display. A number of crosses were also on the lawn. This represents casualties from the Auckland Regiment and will be added too as the centenary commemorations continue.
