my thought on anzac day
My thought on ANZAC Day

To celebrate ANZAC Day my family and I made ANZAC biscuits, and wore an ANZAC badge.

My feelings on ANZAC Day are grateful for all the soldiers that fought for our country and sad thinking about what they had to go through.

my family stories
My family stories
  • My great, great uncle Leslie Stuart David Neave went to Greece in 1941 to fight in World War Two. He died that year on the 8th of August from injuries while being in a prison camp, he didn’t get to see much war.
  • My other great, great uncle Don Roy Neave went to Indonesia to fight but they were attacked when they arrived at Ambon Island. Don died on the 20th of July 1945 therefore he didn’t see much of the war.
