Anzac Day Speeches 2016

“This morning I would like to talk about three aspects of ANZAC day.
• Why do we commemorate ANZAC day on the 25th April;
• What the name of the day represents; and
• The nature of the ANZAC legacy.”
“To the date firstly. April 25 is of course the anniversary of the day Australian troops landed at Gallipoli
in 1915. However, this event in isolation doesn’t seem enough to make this date significant. Gallipoli was not the first time that Australians had been in battle and it was by no means an outstanding success. Australians had previously fought in the Maori wars, had deployed to Sudan in 1885, and had fought again in the Boer war between 1899 and 1902. Gallipoli was not even an Australian battle, for we landed and fought alongside troops from New Zealand, Britain, France and Newfoundland. So why have we chosen April 25?.”
“Gallipoli lasted eight and a half months. In that time 7,600 Australians and 2,500 New Zealanders were killed; 24,000 were wounded. Gallipoli was a battle we lost, and people still ask why we celebrate defeat. The answer is, I believe, that in commemorating ANZAC day we never set out to celebrate victory. Had we wanted to, we had plenty of other opportunities in our military heritage.”
“My second point about ANZAC concerns the very term, ANZAC day. If you think about it, ANZAC is not a battle, and ANZAC is not a place. ANZAC is a collective noun for a group of people. Thus ANZAC day gives us as a nation the opportunity to think as individuals, ordinary Australians serving the nation in times when we as a democracy have seen our land or interests threatened to such a degree that it has been necessary for us to go to war.”
“If we do celebrate anything on ANZAC day it is the legacy that those who fought at ANZAC gave us, and those who followed them strengthened and enriched. In the face of adversity, the ANZACs demonstrated beyond any doubt the necessary military virtues of duty, courage, teamwork, resolution and self sacrifice.”
“ANZAC day is a great Australian and New Zealand tradition. It is celebrated all over the two nations and wherever Australians are overseas. It is our day – a day to remember with affection the courage of people and the value of friendship – to honour the dead and to acknowledge those who suffer still from the effects of war.”

Anzac Day Lest We Forget Song Lyrics

Although you’re getting on in years
And memories seem to disappear
Some things will never fade away
Some memories will stay

There’s one day in each year you will not forget
If this year’s your last year – we will not forget

One more parade – one less digger by your side
One year you’re marching – the next you ride
Hold your head up high – hold your head up high
Lest we forget – lest we forget

It seems a long, long time ago
A young man far away from home
Friends made and lost along the way
Some memories will stay

Those who died – those who live, you will not forget
If this year’s your last year – we will not forget

One more parade – one less digger by your side
One year you’re marching – the next you ride
Hold your head up high – hold your head up high
Lest we forget – lest we forget

The sound of cannon roaring by
The smoke and fire covered sky
The nights of terror as you pray
Some memories will always stay

At the closing of the day – a grateful nation will rise to pray
Some things will never fade away – some memories will stay
Not for one day but always – we will not forget
Your memory for ever – we will not forget

One more parade – one less digger by your side
One year you’re marching – the next you ride
Hold your head up high – hold your head up high
Lest we forget – lest we forget
