Remembering my Mum and Dad – John & Gwen (nee Cutler) Elford

Every year, we are up early to make our way to the local Cenotaph before the first light to pay our respects to our servicemen and women.

But as we all know, this year will be different.

For the first time since the Spanish flu in 1919, Anzac Day services, marches and memorials have been cancelled across the nation, putting decades of tradition on hold.

Even though these services may be cancelled I have no doubt thousands of flames will burn bright this year as many of us pause on our verandas or in our driveways to show our respect in our own special way.

This ANZAC Day will be one we will all remember — and for many of us, it will certainly be memorable. Please light up our streets at dawn with a candle and pause to remember our diggers.
