    In case there are any Kiwi's or Aussies on Board- Happy ANZAC day as you commemorate the anniversary of the start of the Gallipoli invasion.

    From my dealings with them- of all of our allies- the Aussies (along with the Brits) are far and away the most professional army. They don't have the flash equipment but they have the fundamentals down and they have the heart to go with it.

    Good on Ya:thumb:. From my dealings with both they are very professional and don't ever mistake a New Zealander for an Aussie. Sound the same but they know the difference. Happy Anzac Day. Galliopoli was one of Churchills greatest bad decisions.

    My mother was out in Perth for the honors/celebration. Still awaiting her update on how it was!
