Anzac Day Dawn Service in London

For a second year running I visited the ANZAC war memorial in Hyde Park Corner for the dawn service. This year Dan came with me for the service, and instead of taking the night bus we jogged in along Cromwell Road through Knightsbridge in the cool of the morning fog.

As with last year there was an impressive turn out of UK-based Aussies and Kiwi's paying their respects, along with several Australian servicemen in uniform amongst the crowd.. and I'm sure that the gathering was at least a third larger than last years which is great to see.

While we are yet to make it to the Gallipoli site for Anzac Day, we are hoping to make plans to get there in the next few months.
