April has seen my Dad, Mum and brother visit from NZ, ANZAC Day, Hayley’s 4th
birthday and Charlotte’s 6th
ANZAC Day is a national day of remembrance in New Zealand, it is a day we remember those who have served in war. It originally started to honour those in the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli during World War 1.
My Dad was in the NZ Royal Airforce for 8 years, he also plays the bagpipes in the NZ Signals Band and has participated in many ANZAC Days. I didn’t realise but this particular ANZAC Day in Kenya was Dads first dawn service. It was a special occasion for us as a family, as Charlotte raised the NZ flag again, but was able to wear a miniature of Dads service medal, while Dad wore his actual service medal. Dad, Mum and Dan have now left for UK to see my sister.
Murray is currently in Kakuma at the refugee camp in Northern Kenya for work.
