The Golden Fleece

  The Golden Fleece

Jason’s father had been killed by Jason’s brother Pelias. After Pelias took over the kingdom, Jason got sent to live with Chiron. Chiron was a half man and half horse he looked after Jason for a long time and teached him how to  be strong like how to fight and how to be a leader. When Jason was old enough to return to his home  his brother had a plan to get rid of him. Pelias would not let Jason be king util Jason had found the golden fleece. The fleece was guarded by soldiers and dogs so it was gonna be hard to get into the castle to get the golden fleece. To get the golden fleece Jason had to travel to Colchis to get a boat built. The name of the person who built the boat  was Argos and boat’s name was Argo.

Jason collected a group of fighters to go with him on the quest. Jason called them arg after the boat. Him and the crew had so many cool adventures. On there way to Colchis they were attacked by their enemies.They captured the Harpies. They escaped the furies of clashing rocks in the Greek seas and they were attacked by big birds with bonzey feathers. All the time but being protected by goddess hera because Jason helped her in his earlier life time. Finally they got to Colchis but the king did not want to let go of the fleece so the king pretended to be welcoming Jason but he set Jason 3 tasks to show that he was fit enough to be the owner of the golden fleece. Jason would not have passed the test if it wasn't for the king’s daughter Medea who fell in love with Jason. Jason’s task’s were attached to big dangerous bulls.

Medea warned Jason he was being tricked. The bulls that the king would give him could breath fire and the seeds he had to grow were magic dragon teeth. Also the crop that will grow would turn into an army of soldiers that would kill him so Medea helped him.  Medea gave him a secret magic potion so he would not get burnt by the bulls he also had a big shield so that the fire would reflect off the shield and onto  bulls. So he wore gloves and he could take on the soldiers by himself because he was a strong young man. Jason had won the fight and the king let him be the owner of the golden fleece. He then fell in love with Medea and they became a good family and they lived happily ever after.

My Anzac and us cloze

                                      ANZACs and us cloze  

Most Anzac day services began with a march of returned service personnel wearing shiny medals, and marching behind banners and standards. The veterans march joined by other community groups, including members of the armed forces, the Red Cross, cadets etc.

The march continues to the local war memorial, where a service takes place. This includes the laying of wreaths from various organisations and members of the public. Flowers have traditionally been laid on graves and memorials in memory of the dead/passed. Laurel and rosemary are often used in wreaths. Laurel was used by the ancient Romans as a symbol of honour and was woven into a wreath to crown victors or the brave. Rosemary is used for remembrance. The wreaths are laid to honour the people who have died fighting for New Zealand.

The poppy has become the symbol of Anzac` Day. The Flanders poppy as it is sometimes called grew in the trenches and craters of the war zone in Belgium and at Gallipoli. These poppies grew wild in the spring. The soldiers thought of the poppies as soldiers who had died. The poppy was made famous by Colonel J.M. McCrae's poem called in Flanders' Fields. Poppies are sold on the days before Anzac Day to raise money for the R.S.A. [Returned Services Association]

In most ceremonies of remembrance there is a reading of a poem. This is often "The Ode to the Fallen" by Laurence Binyon. It was first published in the Times newspaper in 1914.

They shall not grow old as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning.
We will remember them.

The last post was the trumpet call sounded in army barracks at 10pm at night to mark the end of the days activities. It is also play at military funerals and commemorative services to show then the soldier's day has drawn to a final close.

This is usually followed by a period of silence for one or two minutes as a sign of respect for those how have died. After observing the silence the flags are raised from half-mast to the masthead. The Rouse is then played. The Rouse called the soldier's spirits to arise and fight for another day.

The Reveille is played at the dawn services instead of the Rouse. The Reveille is played only  the first call in the morning. It woke the soldiers up at dawn.

Often hymns are sung and speeches made. The important part of the ceremony is to remember those who died.
