They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

And the Sons of Mary smile and are blessèd---they know the Angels are on their side.
They know in them is the Grace confessèd, and for them are the Mercies multiplied.
They sit at the feet---they hear the Word---they see how truly the Promise runs.
They have cast their burden upon the Lord, and---the Lord He lays it on Martha's Sons!

There's room for chocolate cake on any holiday.

Oh, and it's a day late, but nice idea on the thread. :)

Even sadder since the last ANZAC soldier from WWI in NSW died a year or so ago. I think there's still a few left in the rest of the country, though IIRC there's no Gallipoli veterans left alive here. Dunno about on the islands...
