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.

Many Australians who lost their lives in war weren't thinking they could save the world or defeat evil regimes. As in the trenches of France, and the patrols in Vietnam, or on the Kokoda Track, Australians were looking after their mates alongside them.  Many Australian veterans march on ANZAC Day in memory of their mates left behind, and the ones that have passed on before them.

Peter Barnes initiated this song in March 2001.  He is the author (and copyright owner) of the song and he created the concept, title and lyrics.
