In New Zealand, Anzac Day saw a surge in popularity immediately after World War II. However this was short-lived, and by the 1950s many New Zealanders had become antagonistic or indifferent towards the day. Much of this was linked to the legal ban on commerce on Anzac Day, and the banning by many local authorities of sports events and other entertainment on the day. Annoyance was particularly pronounced in 1953 and 1959, when Anzac Day fell on a Saturday. There was widespread public debate on the issue, with some people calling for the public holiday to be moved to the nearest Sunday or abolished altogether. In 1966 a new Anzac Day Act was passed, allowing sport and entertainment in the afternoon.

Anzac Day Tours Gallipoli Early last month in a war memorial park in Trieste, where WWII ended for the survivors of the New Zealand Division’s Italian campaign (my uncle Winston and many others remain in Faenza), I was startled by a low-flying helicopter. It came from behind and being electric was noiseless. Larger than a toy; but not big enough to carry a person. Looking around, I saw a small group with tri-pod and camera busy filming and, obviously, directing the thing from the ground. It made me think of the drones the US use to shoot rockets into middle-eastern homes. Anzac Day Tours
Anzac Day Tour Turkey Reading Saturday’s editorial about the out-of-step council decision to absent the soldier from next year’s Dawn Parade, I wondered if there might be an off-the-shelf low-cost technological solution. Projecting the soldier on a screen above the plinth would be one. Projecting a Weta Workshops full size multi-dimensional holograph by laser beam from an electric chopper might be another.
