Anzac Day

Cadets Standing to Attention During the Anzac Day Ceremony, Melbourne, Australia
Cadets Standing to Attention During the Anzac Day Ceremony, Melbourne, Australia

April 25 is a national day of remembrance in Australia, New Zealand, Cook Islands, Niue, Samoa and Tonga for those who died and served in military operations.

Anzac Day originally commemorated members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought in the disastrous Dardanelles campaign at Gallipoli in Turkey in 1915.

Dawn Parades

In New Zealand, Anzac Day celebrations for remembrance often include 'Dawn Parades' by members of the cadets, police, fire service, etc. There is also the tradition of wearing paper poppies as symbols of remembrance similar to the tradition for Remembrance Sunday in other Commonwealth countries.



Tributes to Fallen Heroes
The City of Ipswich Anzac Day march
An estimated 4000 people tracked City of Ipswich Anzac Day parade through Ipswich and across the Trumpy Bridge to the sports reserve, where Amberley-based Commanding Officer of Ninth Force Support Battalion Mark Stone was among the dignitaries to address the service. ~ The Ipswich Advertiser
"More than 400 service men and women are buried at the Eltham cemetery. (On Anzac Day 2013) Eltham locals, visitors and dignitaries paid homage to these heroes, as well as those buried overseas, with a dawn service, a parade through town, the laying of wreaths at the memorial at Eltham Primary School and the laying of memorial crosses at the cemetery. Anzac Day memorial services were also held in Stratford, Inglewood and Kaponga." ~ Stratford Press
