The video on this website page is a modern day tribute to Australians who served and have died in places like Afghanistan, Iraq, East Timor and on peacekeeping and humanitarian operations around the world. Australia has a proud military history based on the ANZAC tradition of mateship, courage and sacrifice. Those that serve today in the Australian Defence Force (ADF), continue that proud tradition.
Over 100,000 Australians have lost their lives in the service and defence of our country. Along with their mates, they're marching once again, in the towns and cities, across our great land.
The song is timeless and honours the memory of those who have died in the service and defence of Australia in war.
The marching theme of the song is especially powerful and supports the spirit of ANZAC Day. The song does not glorify war or endorse conflict of any kind. The song simply highlights the sacrifice of many Australians who died in the service and defence of our country in war.
