What is the legend?

In theory, the legend is that the Australian and New Zealand troops helped to establish their countries' reputations in the world through qualities of strength and bravery when faced with adversity.

In fact, it is much more than that.

The legend of these men who endured so much has given something of which Australians and New Zealanders can be proud.

It put Australia's mark on the world as something other than a nation descended from convicts.

"They shall grow not 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."

I'm a bit late in replying, but thank you for your post. I found it very moving. It's always a good thing to be reminded of the bravery and sacrifices made by people from countries other than our own.

Indeed it did and I hope that nobody these days would think of Australians in those former bigoted ways. Thank you again for what you said so that like you, others will honour your compatriots.
