The Anzac Exhibit

They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old:

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning,

We will remember them.

(Laurence Binyon, For the Fallen)

This year, Classic Motorcycle Mecca will pay tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
