Anzac Day on April 25 in Australia and New Zealand honours the members of the Australian and NZ Army Corps who fought at Gallipoli in World War I. Each year I remember a very special friend, pictured left, one of the last Diggers, the darling Eric Abraham, who fought at Amiens, the Hindenburg Line, Polygon Wood and the Battle of the Somme. He volunteered to be the 'bugle boy' in the Snowball March in Queensland and said that playing the bugle saved his life several times during the war. He died at the age of 105. At one of his birthdays, when in his 100s, a friend of his managed to find his bugle which had gone missing many many years before - miraculously at a market stall in Queensland, harder to locate than a needle in a haystack, and presented it to him at his birthday gathering. I will never forget that magic moment...What stories do you have about Anzac Day that you can share here?
