"Why did so many Australians volunteer to go and fight on the other side of the world? What was it like living in the trenches at Gallipoli, only a stone's throw from the enemy? Why were there almost 50 percent casualties at the first landing? How accurate was the 1981 movie, Gallipoli? Why do Australians commemorate Anzac Day?"

You are a memed

Tell me my friend said memed
To the anzak
Where are you from
You look miss your home
From Other side of the world said anzak
It says on my tombstone
The soil cover me is not from my home
Dont worry said memed
You are here in my home
With me forever
You are a memed forever
You are my brother

Former Prime Minister
