Why is a poppy worn on ANZAC Day?
What is a war memorial?
A war memorial is a statue that has the names of the soldiers who went to war.
A poppy is worn on ANZAC Day because poppies grew in Flanders Fields near the battlefields, also the soldiers put poppies on the graves of the dead soldiers.
What is the Ode? Why is important?
What is the Last Post? Where did it originate?
The Last Post is a tune that is played on a bugle. It was played to signify the end of the dayduring the war.
They shall not grow old
As we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
at the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
When do we commemorate ANZAC Day?
We commemorate ANZAC Day on the 25th of April every year.
Why is it commemorated on this day?
We celebrate it on this day because on this day 97 years ago the Australian and New Zealand troops landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula.
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.
