“Nothing can alter what happened now; Anzac stood and still stands for reckless valour in a good cause, for enterprise, resourcefulness, fidelity, comradeship and endurance that will never admit defeat”.  Charles Bean, Gallipoli Correspondent, The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age.

These words from 1915 are still profound. They resonated with me during our recent catastrophic summer of bushfires.

‘Under a Blood Orange Sky’ is dedicated to my mother’s brothers, three of whom served in World War II.
