Entry for ANZAC - a little early
Not sure if there's just some strange spooky coincidence that this -- cartoons as linked, coffin photo fuss -- is happening in America during the run-up to Anzac Day in Australasia (and at overseas postings). Thought they shared their main war remembrances with the UK (other countries?) at Armistice/Remembrance day, November 11.
Am typing this on Anzac Eve, having clipped a large bunch of rosemary from my father's memorial garden bed and given it to the chap organizing a local Anzac Day Ceremony to use for everyone's sprigs. Sometimes it coincides with Easter even more closely, making the connexion of sacrifice & memory between the two very evident.
It is always particularly poignant when we have troops (whatever branch of services) on active service as now.
