Anzac Day - 25 April 2011 - Waihi Beach Dawn Service

The weather gods were not kind to us this morning, it was dark and wet when we set out for the dawn service at the Waihi Beach RSA (which in my opinion has one of the best views from any RSA in the country) despite the weather there was a great turnout for the service lots of children which is good to see keeping the Anzac spirit alive and representatives from all the armed services.  The service was held inside but it took little away from the solemnity of the occasion. 

I was hoping to visit four new memorials today but the weather is atrocious so may have to postpone until tomorrow unless the weather picks up.

In the meantime trying to do some research while watching a classic WW2 movie on the Maori channel starring John Mills - great stuff!
