Anzac Day, 25 April, is one of Australia’s most important national occasions. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.
Australians recognise April 25 as a day of national remembrance. Commemorative services are held across the nation at dawn – the time of the original landing, while later in the day, former servicemen and servicewomen meet to take part in marches through the country’s major cities and in many smaller centres. Commemorative ceremonies are more formal and are held at war memorials around the country. In these ways, Anzac Day is a time to which Australians reflect on the many different meanings of war.
We'll be up for the Dawn Service and then probably be playing some two-up later on. Remember to take care of yourselves and your mates and never forget what this day means to all of us.
