On the battlefields of Poziers, France in 1916, a mortally wounded soldier turned to journalist Charles Bean and used his dying breath to ask, "Will they remember me in Australia?"

For the last 105 years Australians have gathered in the streets of towns and cities on ANZAC Day to answer this question in the most public of ways. We will always remember them.

But this year will be different.

In place of the usual ceremonies, many of us have embraced the Light Up The Dawn initiative of the RSL, and will mark the day with a vigil in driveways lawns, living rooms and balconies across the country.

Australia's response to the pandemic has been compared many times to wartime, so this year, more than ever, it's important for us to stay united and show that our spirit stays strong.

We can't physically be together this year, but we can share our stories of remembrance to help bring us a little closer on this most important of national days.

If you're setting the alarm clock this ANZAC Day, we want to hear who you'll be standing for - is it for a relative or an ancestor who has served? Where did they serve and what was their sacrifice? Or are you a veteran yourself?

Email the details to dani.brown@victorharbortimes.com.au to be included in a story commemorating Anzac Day and those who served.

Please feel free to include a picture of yourself or your loved one.
