Today is ANZAC Day here in New Zealand, a national holiday. It commemorates all New Zealanders killed in war and honors returned servicemen and women. However it is also the 93rd anniversary of the landing of the ANZAC's at Gallipoli in Turkey where 8500 Australians and 2721 New Zealanders were killed. ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps.
These are photos of my grandfather, who flew spitfires during World War 2, a 'then' and 'now' comparison. I am proud of my grandfather.
