Anzac Day

We watched bits of the Anzac march on TV, as well as portions of the ceremonies at Gallipoli and Villers-Bretonneux.    The march in Melbourne seemed to take longer than in previous years;  perhaps the nice weather had something to do with this?   I participated in this once, but don't feel any urge to do so again.

It does seem that a great deal of effort (and hence, presumably, expense?) has gone into arranging the overseas ceremonies (lots of dignitaries and so on), and there's more on the way.    I leave it for others to pass judgment on whether it's all a bit over the top.
