One of the mainstays of an army is its esprit-de-corps, that spirit which gives a soldier purpose and the endurance to carry on when others might give up. The so-called Rising Sun badge, worn on the up-turned brim of Australian soldiers’ slouch hats, typifies the Spirit of Anzacs.

It was true of anzac day. And our crowd would have been proud to see our club play that way, under that stress when one of our team went down early. Unlikely heroes stood up.

It is a day for looking after your mates, cherishing your home, your neighborhood and family…It’s a day for realizing how rare this wonderful country of ours is and how precious it is.
