TENS of thousands of southern Australians gathered this morning at daycare services to Anzac Day over the state on the 103th anniversary of the landing of Australian and New Zealand troops in Gallipoli.
On a brilliant April morning at the National War Memorial in Adelaide, Governor, Hieu Van Le, made the first wreath to tribute to those who have fallen in service of serving the nation.
The ceremony chief and chairman of the SA Anzac Day Committee, Ian Smith, recalled about a crowd of around 5000, the war is an "expensive and terrible business" and that more than 102,000 Australians have lost their lives for service to the nation.
"Anzac Day never deals with military victories – in fact, the Anzac tradition's creatures with an expensive disaster," he said.
& # 39; For our veterans we show respect, we honor and we thank.
