A Sprig of Rosemary

Traditionally worn on Anzac Day. Rosemary is an ancient symbol of remembrance and is particularly significant to Australians as it is found growing wild in Gallipoli Peninsula.

Those Faded Suits of Green
Written by Rebecca Morton M.B.E
First published in Women’s Weekly July 1943.

Ms Morton was moved to write this verse when the Red Cross trains were carrying away from Cairns, the wounded and fever stricken from the tortures of Milne Bay, the Kokoda Trail, Buna and Goma. She began writing poems after her late husband Harry Morton was killed on duty in Townsville and received an M.B.E in 1962.

Listen as Chad takes us all on a journey of those Glorious soldiers who bravely wore their patchy, streaky & faded uniforms with pride.
