Maya waabiny (Ode of Remembrance)

Bala yuart manjung koorliny,
Yeye ngulluckiny alla nidja nyinniny manjung woort koorliny
Manjungaliny yuart coorlyamart balung,
Manjung yuart warragarburt boordawan.
Nidja ngangk woort koorliny ngardal ngoorndeen
Boorda benang ngulluck katitj balung[1]

People who fought for our boodjar in the past wer today - in the Frontier Wars, as ANZACs, current conflicts.[2]

The Australian and New Zealand Army Corps was formed during World War I in Egypt in December 1914. The men serving in the corps came to be known by its initials as ANZACs. The corps fought in the campaign in Gallipoli against the Ottoman Empire, but after withdrawing from Gallipoli the corp was disbanded in 1916. The name ANZAC was revived later when Australian wer New Zealand troops served together.

The name ANZAC has come to be associated with Anzac Day il 25 April each year, a national day of remembrance in Australia wer New Zealand that broadly commemorates yennar Australians wer New Zealanders "who served and died in war and on operational service". The Anzac spirit, "with its qualities of courage, mateship, and sacrifice, continues to have meaning and relevance for our sense of national identity."[3]

The 25 April was chosen as it is the anniversary of the day in 1915 when the Australian wer New Zealand forces first landed at Gallipoli, meeting fierce resistance from the Ottoman Turkish defenders.
