Remembering our Fallen Soldiers

Lest We Forget

On April 25 each year Australians remember the sacrifices made by members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli in World War 1.  On this day over 10,000 ANZACS lost their lives.  Around Australia, dawn services are held at the exact time the ANZACS landed at Gallipoli (4.20 am); and memorials are held throughout the day.  The day of rememberance now incorporates all casualties of war since WWII.  ANZAC Day is a public holiday throughout Australia.  In recent times, the number of WW I and II veterans has dwindled significantly, however attendance at services and marches continues to grow at a remarkable rate.  It’s a very important day in the history of Australia.  “At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we will remember them.  Lest We Forget”.
