Photographer's Note

Two mates catch up at yesterday's Anzac Day Parade in Brisbane. I am guessing that they are Vietnam veterans.

Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand, and is commemorated by both countries on 25 April every year to honour members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli in Turkey during World War I. It now more broadly commemorates all those who died and served in military operations for their countries.

Mateship is an Australian cultural idiom that embodies equality, loyalty and friendship. Mateship derives from mate, meaning friend, commonly used in Australia as an amicable form of address.
