What has the ill-fated ANZAC expedition at Gallipoli in WW1 to do the Death Railway in WW2?

Anzac day is a day of remembrance for all those Aussies and Kiwis who died in all wars; not just Gallipoli.

On Anzac Day 1987 Hellfire Pass was dedicated after being reclaimed from the jungle by returning POW's.

On one of the graves the Soldiers Wife had inscribed "One day, my beloved Husband, I may understand."

 

I'm 74 and still don't.

 

Mans inhumanity to Man!

I have two relatives buried there and another still unfound.  I'm 73 and i still don't understand either !

Hats off to the Aussie Embassy for doing a great job organizing this every year with support from the Kiwis. Also to CWGC which maintains the cemeteries in Thailand and in the rest of world superbly. I have an uncle who lies in a CWGC grave in Greece - died of wounds as a 23 year-old 2nd lieutenant in the Battle of Leros, cut off from the main force which they didn’t know had already surrendered to the Germans.

 

Lest we forget.
