Covid-19 Anzac Day
What a great way to observe Anzac Day, with a candle at the end of our driveway at 6am. Good to see other people and lights along the street. Wonderful to hear the bugle which seemed to coming from the NE, maybe Forestville or was it from Keswick Army Barracks. Actually I heard 2 bugles in the area.
This might become the new way to observe Anzac Day; from our driveway.
By my estimate, this year there was a far greater attendance (in the driveway or on the balcony) than at the formal events at war memorials; by a factor of 3-4-5+ times.
It would have to be the biggest Anzac Day ‘ attendance’; ever.
I suspect (and would like) that this catches on.
In the future, attendance will be down at the formal events.
People will continue observing the day at 6am in their driveways and out on the street. Next year I will be in my driveway, joining the neighbours on the street, listening to local bugles and then later watching the formal events on TV.
I think that this will be the new norm.
I betcha a bunch of Gallipoli Rosemary that this will be the new norm.
