Audio file

Hear an extract from Today's the day: Anzac Day

This is an extract from a story by Anthony Scott Veitch, which was recorded by Amalgamated Wireless, Sydney.

This is Remembrance
This a a name upon a discharge sheet
This is a bunch of creased and faded ribbons
This is a medal, clinking on a smooth black dress
This is a tear, shed by the old, the grey
This is a bugle call sounding down the years
This is a glory
This is Anzac
