On the battlefields of Pozières, 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?"

Now that we can physically be together again this year, we want to share your stories of remembrance.

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

Send information about who you will be standing for to editor@mandurahmail.com.au
