ANZAC Day 2019 at Jingjoes Aussie Bar, Udon Thani.

Post by Sport » April 6, 2019, 10:21 am

Thursday 25 April 2019 is ANZAC Day for Commonwealth countries and their Allies from WW1. ANZACs, (Australian New Zealand Army Corp) is a day that is remembered by those 2 countries who were part of a larger force that stormed the beach and cliffs of Gallipoli in Turkey on that day in 1915 and the first time Oz and Kiwis fought as one group.

Losses to the Commonwealth armies were high as too for the Turks who never gave up and were heroic soldiers. It was a defeat for the Commonwealth and on this day we remember the sacrifices of both armies and ceremonies take place around the world marking this event.

At "Jingjoes" Aussie Bar we will be doing our small part too remember the fallen. The bar is located in Soi Srisunthon, off Nittaya Rd, directly opposite the Post Office, Udon Gourmet Meats and NB Hotel, just down from Marko heading towards the city and the same side as Makro, you may see the black kangaroo on yellow background on the main road.

Commencing at 7.30am, Ice cold refreshments and free snack food will be available together with a free shot of Bundaberg and other rums. Around 8.30am a small ceremony will take place with 2 speech's and the lowering and raising of the Oz and Kiwi flags.

If you are travelling to Kanchanaburi (River Kwae) for the ceremony take care on the roads. Everybody is welcome to Jingjoes. The one sided AFL match Essendon = Collingwood kicks off at 12.20pm.

Lest we forget.

Thanks Rob

Will you be remembering the half a million or so Muslim soldiers that fought on the side of the allies , or the million plus Muslims that worked supplying the lines ?

2,000 "Australians" fought in the New Zealand Wars in the 1860s in New Zealand. They were mainly Victorians. There were plenty of Poms fighting as well. These NZ wars used to be called the Maori Wars.

I hope Essendon win.

We are only remembering the ANZACs on this day, other countries and different nationalities will probably have their own special rememberance day. And no doubt our minds will cast over the sacrifice of other nations and their soldiers through wars in different theatres. This day is about Aussies and Kiwis at Gallipoli, nothing more.

Hope to see you there Rob.
Congrats for making your premises available.
Yes it is a solemn day allows us to remember those that sacrificed all for the cause at that time in history.

Saint why don’t you come along and see what and who is actually remembered on this Anzac Day day. Forget your personal gripe with those you disagree with.
I remember attending the Anzac service at the Australian embassy in Saudi Arabia years ago and the Turkish ambassador gave a terrific speech on the Gallipoli landing. Explaining the effect the campaign had on both sides.

Rob is no where near the Nong Kai road as he mentions coming from Big C pass makro on your left and look for yellow and black Kangaroo sign on the left turn left and its on the left on that road there are probably shorter ways to find it but think this is the easiest if you havent been before

See Map below.
It has a Kangeroo sign at the entrance to the soi.
The post Office is on the other side of the road just past the turn off.
