Our Fallen Soldiers Remembered on an Unusual Anzac Day

Remembering and honouring the Anzacs this year called for new and innovative ways. 

At 6.00 am on Anzac Day, many Australians stood on their driveways with a lit candle and the Australian flag as a substitute to gathering en masse at cenotaphs and war memorials as we would normally do. It was a pleasant surprise to hear a number of distant buglers sounding the last post and, after a minute's silence, the playing of the reveille. It has been suggested that this new way of celebrating Anzac Day will become the standard practice from now on.
