If you have read the poem
Of the Anzac on the wall
Then he like many others
In our mind stands proud and tall

They left their home and country
And from loved ones they did go
To heed the call from o’er the sea
In a land they did not know

Landed at Gallipoli
On that well remembered morn
Where the Spirit of the Anzac
Was there forever born

Up upon the Western Front
That Spirit did show through
As our Brave Mates they did the best
Of what they have to do

That same Anzac Spirit
Forged in lands so far
Is now instilled in each of us
It’s part of who we are

All Brave Mates who’ve served
No matter where they fall
They too become a part
The Anzac on the wall
