    April 25 is ANZAC DAY.

    A day of remembrance, ANZAC DAY is probably the most important national occasion for both Australia and New Zealand.

    Originally 25 April every year was to honour the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli in the Ottoman Empire during World War I. Anzac Day is also observed in the Cook Islands, Niue, Pitcairn Islands, and Tonga. These days it has a broader significance and commemorates all those who have served their country in conflict since Gallipoli.

    This is a PC from the Maude Lankester collection. This card was ubiquitous in its time. These days it is a highly collected item:

    Australia picture postcard (Harry J. Weston drawing) showing Wounded Soldier with rifle and bandage on head and World War 1 Patriotic message "He'll be home soon, sick and wounded, give him a Helping Hand", unused.

    Weston, Harry J. (Harry John) (1874-1938) aka Arry Weston.

    Arry was a cartoonist, painter, commercial artist and architect. He was born in Hobart, Tasmania. He was originally articled to an architectural firm in Launceston but later became a staff artist on the Launceston Examiner (1896-98). He exhibited with the Launceston Art Society in 1898. That year he left Launceston for health reasons and made his way to Melbourne, where he designed posters for Dunlop Rubber and Boomerang Brandy with Lionel Lindsay and Blamire Young.

    He exhibited with the Victorian Artists’ Society in 1902-4 and was a member of the Prehistoric Order of Cannibals, a Melbourne Bohemian sketch club of the 1890s that included the Lindsays, the Dysons, Hugh McCrae and Max Meldrum.

    Weston moved to Sydney c.1905 where he remained for the rest of his life. He established his own advertising agency, a sketching school and exhibited with the NSW Society of Artists.

      Wasn't that the misguided strategy that cost Churchhill that cost him his post in the admiralty?
    11. vetraio50 vetraio50, 7 years ago
      Indeed it was BLUNDERBUSS!
      Mind you it is the subject still of much discussion:

      "Nearly a century later, Australians, New Zealanders, and Turks all regard the conflict at Gallipoli as a central event in their modern history. Like Gettysburg, Gallipoli is shared sacred ground that unites former enemies and marks a pivotal moment in their past. “Those countries all date their existence to that battle,” says Australian National University historian Bill Gammage."

      Thanks for the reminder of the blunders of those who are later considered heroes. I'm no strategist nor have to use hind-site to have seen the error of that campaign. Churchill was disgraced & I need to research how he made his come-back during WWII. My opinion is that he, Stalin & Hitler were cut from the same cloth & wanted to be masters of the world. The U.S. came in when both sides were worn out in both wars & then claimed they won both wars & came out the questionable "masters". A real study of details of history & the records tell what the true story. It's a shame that the winners always get to write the history books. This might not be a welcome comment, of course.
    14. vetraio50 vetraio50, 7 years ago
      You are welcome to express it here, mate!
    15. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 7 years ago
      Thank you vetraio50. I had a few more comments that I hesitated to express as I knew they wouldn't be accepted well considering the propaganda & brain-washing so common today. History books tell the winning sides story, but the records often tells the truth.

      Vetraio ive being doing some research on tthese forces recently there is a place near here called Anzac i heard there was a camp there. Turns out it was railway camp. Courageous bunch of people.
    36. vetraio50 vetraio50, 5 years ago
      Latitude. 54.7666°, Longitude. -122.5031°.
      Anzac River is 56km away from Mackenzie, it seems. North Anzac River is a stream in British Columbia and is nearby to Patches Mountain, Mount Bracey and Mount Emmet. Grayling fishing and Moosin !!! ..... "named for the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps of World War I renown."

      I had a look at video. Never knew of it, mate! Thanks for the lead.
