Hey there Harry,
It's a huge thing in New Zealand and Australia.
It's interesting you say it's tradition to wear rosemary.. I don't know
where that would've come from. We wear a poppy, they sell them throughout
the country a week before the remembrance. As you probably know, the ANZAC's
were slaughtered basically, so it's of deep meaning for us, it's also public
holiday here (well for some of us I guess, some shops open at 1pm). We have
a dawn parade which I will be going to as usual, and my partner is involved
with Air Training Corp and they go around the regions cenitafs and parade.
