Anzac Day

To our friends from Australia and New Zealand – have a blessed Anzac Day.

May the sacrifices of all men and women in war never be forgotten.

Anzac Day (25 April) is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand to commemorate all Australians and New Zealanders who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations.

25 April is the date of the start of the ill-fated Gallipoli Campaign in 1915 during the First World War, in what is now northwest Turkey. The campaign saw the deaths of more than 8,700 Australians and 2,700 New Zealanders, and marked the birth of national consciousness in Australia and New Zealand.

Lest we forget…
