GAGs - GeniAus' Gems - 29 April 2017

The focus in Australia and New Zealand this week has been on remembering the commitment and sacrifice of the men and women in our armed forces. As there has been no Trans-Tasman ANZAC Day Challenge this year I have decided to make this issue a compilation of blog posts with an ANZAC Day theme.


I am including all of the posts I have read but apologise if I have missed any. Please let me know of any I may have overlooked and I will add them.

WOW...thank you Jill. I didn't realise so many ANZAC blogs...I will go and read those that I've missed. It has become a tradition for me now...I need to find some more Gallipoli stories to share. LEST WE FORGET.
