For Harold Irons Muir of Greytown, who fought at Gallipoli and was killed on the Somme. And for all those others who were denied the chance to live a full life. "We Shall Remember Them."

He tuku maumahara tēnei ki a Rory Malone, moe mai rā e te tuakana, kia au ai te moe. "Moe mai koutou te moenga o te toa. Te māra whakatara o te nguha o te riri, i te maru o te ihi o te wehi o te mana, kei te kapu o te ringa o Tūmatauenga, koutou tamatoa nō Aotearoa!"

Remembering my grandfather who suffered PTSD after battles of Ypres, my father who suffered serious burns bailing out of burning plane (RCAF WW2). They knew the horror of war.

Remembering them all this ANZAC DAY from Japan, especially my father Dan Allen 23rd Batt 2NZEF (North Africa and Italy Campaigns)

To those who gave their yesterdays so we could have our tomorrows, kei te haere tonu nga mihi. Kei wareware tatou.

To all the men who gave their lives in ww1 , and for all the families who have lost someone , and for all of those who have been separated across space and time , for my great grand uncle who is buried in Belgium and died here without his family being able to be by his grave side for 96 years ... For all the healing that continues for those who were taken before their time xxx

To you my Dad Jack Oxbrow Who served in the 18th batallion and every one that served in the wars i salute and thankyou with all my heart

On ANZAC day I would like to remember both my Dad WW11 and my Grandfather WW1 and my Granduncle who died fighting WW1

Dad, e kore e warewaretia...

To all those who gave there lives not only for there country but for the future of their loved ones . Not only to see the aftermath of what war does it is sad that so many innocent lives were lost at what cost is what we ask? For those in power to gain more when we understand as humans that no matter what colour or race we are we bleed the same colour. For all those that gave there lives honorably and to their families this poppy is for you. God Bless and may he grant you peace in your hearts in remembrance of your loved ones sacrifice. This coming ANZAC day...Blessings. xox
