What day to be at home sick! I had planned for weeks to attend the Anzac commemoration parade today, but bronchitis holds back for no man.
And what an event it turns out I missed. Beautiful weather; big crowds; loads of WW1 trucks, buses, tanks and horse-drawn guns; young period soldiers who actually looked the part; a sea of red poppies; stirring haka from schoolboys as the parade passed … wow!
These are just some of the photos from today’s New Zealand Herald.
