Today is ANZAC day here, a remberance day for our kiwi soldiers and Australian allies. Normally there is a dawn parade at 6am, but due to still being locked down people were going to stand at their driveways with candles. Mum would have liked to get up but her sleeping has been terrible and she only fell asleep at 3am.
This was a little cottage down the road from our place with their flag up and ready. When mum grew up you seldom saw flags at people's homes, but it has got more and more common as the years have gone by.
Thank you to the great uncles that fought for our freedoms and the great aunts and grand parents who did their part in the communities at home.
And for something a bit cheery. The New Zealand Army Band - Signed, Sealed, Delivered.
