The courage of the Anzacs was heralded by a tribute from the Bassendean RSL, the Returned Servicemen’s League, in a suburb perched on edge of the Swan River. A sizeable number of people turned  up for the tribute, including Ukrainians who live in the area.

Australians celebrate, and will continue to celebrate, Anzac Day, a day chosen as the first and perhaps the most spectacular of the great exploits of our soldiers in the war – a simple little story of the scaling of those cliffs, and one which our children must be taught to love with the combined love of a whole nation, and to remember as an example of the high sense of duty held by their fathers.

In a Europe that has been decimated by Putin’s immoral and genocidal war against the Ukrainian nation and its inspirational President Volodymyr Zelensky we can understand the importance of fighting for democracy and for nationhood as the ordinary people  of Ukraine have. The heroic exploits of the Anzacs can be compared to the heroism of the Ukrainian nation. Resisting the cruelty of Putin and his barbaric invaders is an important principal behind courage. The Anzacs earned their reputation just as the Ukrainians are earning theirs. Both armies are reflecting their courage to the  world we live in. The local Ukrainians through two children Will and Evie and their Youth Organisation contributed a wreathe and placed it on the significant memorial in the centre of the town. Several of them carrying their national flag received pointed applause from people attending the ceremony.
