10/15: my anzac tribute

In commemoration of the ANZACS at Gallipoli one hundred years ago, I have calligraphed The Ode. This was the fourth stanza of a poem entitled For the Fallen, by Laurence Binyon, a British poet and writer.  It was actually written in 1914, not long after the start of the Great War. Lest we forget.

17/14: a calligraphic tribute to the anzacs

Given that it is Anzac Day, I thought a tribute to all who died in wars for our freedom would be appropriate. Naturally we also recognise those who fought and lived. Rosemary is used as a sign of remembrance.

For those overseas, ANZAC stands for  the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. However, this is not a history lesson, just my tribute. Google ANZAC DAY to find out more. There is even a special biscuit traditionally associated with this day. I might even bake some.
