Remembering the Anzacs | 25th April 2024

Every year on the 25th of April, hundreds of thousands of Australians and New Zealanders around the world gather at dawn on Anzac Day. Now, more than ever, we hold peace close to our hearts.

ANZAC is an acronym and stands for Australian New Zealand Army Corps, the name given to the body of troops raised by the two countries to aid the British Empire in the Great War. Throughout the war Australian and New Zealand troops, or ‘Diggers’ and ‘Kiwis’, would live, fight, and die alongside each other creating a bond between the two nations that still exists today.

Originally a commemoration of the landing of Australian and New Zealand forces at Gallipoli in modern-day Turkey in 1915, Anzac Day is a public expression of gratitude and reflection on the service and sacrifice of generations and all those who suffer the consequences of war, which resonates to the present day.
