REFLECTION ON ANZAC DAY

April 23, 2014

As we approach the centenary of the military campaign on the Gallipoli peninsula it is an appropriate time for reflection on the significance of this annual day of commemoration.

Although ANZAC day marks the landings at Gallipoli nearly a century ago, ANZAC day is revered by all Australians as the day to commemorate the lives of Australians and New Zealanders who have died in the service of their country.

Each year, thousands of Australians across the country will attend dawn services at local memorials and cenotaphs. Prayers will be read, the Last Post played and our national anthem sung. While each of these services will follow a format that has existed for decades, each service will have unique elements that reflect local traditions. Services like those held in our towns and cities will also be held in overseas locations where Australian servicemen and women have fought and died.
