Word of the Week

valour

noun

Great courage inthe face of danger,especially in battle:the medals are awarded for acts ofvalour

Derivatives

Valorous valorousness valorously

Origin: Middle English (denoting worth derived from personal qualities or rank): via Old French from late Latin valor, from valere 'bestrong'.

Perhaps the best (and most widely misquoted) reflection of the meaning of Anzac is to be found in Charles Bean's one-volume history of Australia in the Great War, Anzac to Amiens. In describing the evacuation of the Anzac area, Bean wrote:

"By dawn on December 20th Anzac had faded into a dim blue line lost amid other hills on the horizon as the ships took their human freight to Imbros, Lemnos and Egypt. But Anzac stood, and still stands, for reckless valour in a good cause, for enterprise, resourcefulness, fidelity, comradeship, and endurance that will never own defeat."


Duty
As we come up to ANZAC Day we remember the Spirit of Duty which helped create the resolve of the Allied Nations to defeat Hitler's Germany.

"We shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender." 
Winston Churchill- speech in the House of Commons, 4 June 1940.
