    My deepest respect to those brave and dedicated soldiers though Anzac Day was originally to honour the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli against the Ottoman Empire during World War I it has since been expanded to honor all ANZAC dead in all conflicts.
    Requiem æternam dona eis, Domine
    Et lux perpetua luceat eis:
    Resquicant in Pace.
