I might be unlucky enough to get my head on TV again down the middle of George St.  I think this is the last year the march will be held there.

Ive been doing 12+ hour days for a long time, including my breaks like Easter Friday/Sat/Sun/Mon.. its likely I'll work this public holiday on luv too. but if i ever get a chance... I'll hibernate like a bear and catch up on some sleep. :)

 

So no, no Kings Park for me sorry, its 400kms from where I am.

Why should there be? ANZAC day isn't a celebration, it's a day for remembrance. In the past WG have donated a % of profits to Aussie and NZ charities and other countries represented by WG Asia have complained about it.

Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives... You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets to us where they lie side by side now here in this country of ours... you, the mothers, who sent their sons from faraway countries wipe away your tears; your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace. After having lost their lives on this land they have become our sons as well.

Oh Max

 

Probably not the right thread to discuss this & a little in bad taste at this present moment, its a time to reflect & remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.

 

Yes, SE Asia has not seen such barbaric times since the Mongol invasions but the Japanese are not like that today, the Code of Bushido is not drilled into their youth from an early age anymore.

The Japanese are industrious, hard working & a very proud race & no one should forget, they were an Ally in WW1 & are one of our Leading Asian Allies now with a very common ground with the Western Nations & with currant Geo Politics, looks like they will be for decades & decades to come.

It would be nice if the developers of this game did something nice for the Aussies and Kiwis who play this game . It's ANZAC Day today (25-04-2014) and for all you none Aussie/Kiwis , ANZAC stands for Australian New Zealand Army Corp . Today we remember all the ANZACs who gave their life in WWl . I hope anyone who reads this little post will actively go and find some history on these brave men . Lest We Forget

Its a joke..all those ppl that died..just for it being China day they put x5 exp on..ANZCA day nothing.

But they take your money withing a hart beat..NOT ANY MORE.

 

All those people that died....correct. All those people who died which have nothing to do with you playing a tanks game.

 

Get your heads out of the proverbial.

 

I'm certain those we remember on ANZAC Day won't be too upset that wargaming give no special treatment to random Australian & New Zealanders on the 25th of April each year.

To me, personally, being an ex-serving member, I find that service people never forget what others have done before them.

 

Anzac Day is a great tradition which is getting even stronger as the years go by, but ex and serving servicemen and women will always honour the deeds of those who have fallen every day of the year.

Lest we forget

 

This song sums it all up

 

 

 

~~Now when I was a young man, I carried me pack, and I lived the free life of a rover
 From the Murray's green basin to the dusty outback, well, I waltzed my Matilda all over.
 Then in 1915, my country said son, It's time you stopped rambling, there's work to be done.
 So they gave me a tin hat, and they gave me a gun, and they marched me away to the war.

 And the band played Waltzing Matilda, as the ship pulled away from the quay
 And amidst all the cheers, the flag-waving and tears, we sailed off for Gallipoli
 And how well I remember that terrible day, how our blood stained the sand and the water
 And of how in that hell that they called Suvla Bay, we were butchered like lambs at the slaughter.
 Johnny Turk he was waiting, he'd primed himself well. He shower'd us with bullets,
 And he rained us with shell. And in five minutes flat, he'd blown us all to hell
 Nearly blew us right back to Australia.

~~But the band played Waltzing Matilda, when we stopped to bury our slain.
 We buried ours, and the Turks buried theirs, then we started all over again.
 And those that were left, well we tried to survive, in that mad world of blood, death and fire
 And for ten weary weeks, I kept myself alive, though around me the corpses piled higher
 Then a big Turkish shell knocked me arse over head, and when I woke up in my hospital bed,
 And saw what it had done, well I wished I was dead. Never knew there was worse things than dyin'.

 For I'll go no more waltzing Matilda, all around the green bush far and free
 To hump tent and pegs, a man needs both legs-no more waltzing Matilda for me.
 So they gathered the crippled, the wounded, the maimed, and they shipped us back home to Australia.
 The legless, the armless, the blind, the insane, those proud wounded heroes of Suvla
 And as our ship pulled into Circular Quay, I looked at the place where me legs used to be.
 And thanked Christ there was nobody waiting for me, to grieve, to mourn, and to pity.

~~But the band played Waltzing Matilda, as they carried us down the gangway.
 But nobody cheered, they just stood and stared, then they turned all their faces away
 And so now every April, I sit on me porch, and I watch the parades pass before me.
 And I see my old comrades, how proudly they march, reviving old dreams of past glories
 And the old men march slowly, old bones stiff and sore. They're tired old heroes from a forgotten war
 And the young people ask, what are they marching for? And I ask myself the same question.

 But the band plays Waltzing Matilda, and the old men still answer the call,
 But as year follows year, more old men disappear. Someday no one will march there at all.
 Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda, who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me?
 And their ghosts may be heard as they march by that billabong, who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me?

It is also right that we should remember all servicemen regardless of Nation.
