ANZAC Day memorial: the day we marched to remember

On the anniversary of the Battle of Gallipoli, we remember the fallen, and those left behind. Lest we forget.

As we rise at dawn to remember the men, women and children that gave their lives to the service of Australia this ANZAC Day, The Weekly has gone through the archives to prepare this touching tribute to the fallen – and those left behind.

These pictures, taken of the veterans, the leaders and those who have had to suffer the loss of a brother, sister, husband, wife, son or daughter, represent the pain and triumph of Australia’s sacrifice as they marched to remember.

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.

Lest we forget.
