25.04.2005 09:22 - ANZAC Day
Today, April 25th, is ANZAC day.
My paternal step-grandfather, Joseph Peake, was at Gallipolli with the South Wales Border Regiment, and watched as the Australian troups senselessly charged Turkish machine-guns.
He only ever spoke about it once, to my father. "Murderers" he said, and he wasn't talking about the Turks.
