Anzac Day, 25th April, 2012

Regardless of what history or internet links say, tomorrow April 25  is so important in Australia’s history.

This was the time when young MALE Australians stood up to the emotional call to “Mother England” and signed their own death sentences.

I will never back away  from the fact that my uncle, George  Dobson committed himself as part of the EMPIRE force

Whether his call to action was right, or wrong


before Anzac Cove

He was an idealist, living in the most far flung corners of the British Empire. How many other families lost their young men to the same USELESS,

meaning -full “call”To THE EMPIRE!

An empire that viewed these young as cannon fodder, because they came from the Antipodes…………..

NOT good enough

These young men BELIEVED in their “mother country”

The mother country did NOTHING  for them!

ANZACS…….I salute and honour you                 and give you my sincere THANKS
