ANZAC Day is when we pause to remember those Australians and New Zealanders killed in war, to honour returned servicemen and women and to pay tribute to those personnel who are currently serving their countries. Although its timing recalls the landing at Gallipoli of the Australia and New Zealand Army Corps on 25th April, 1915, the commemorative service is for all those who have given their lives during conflict.
In 2012 there will be two ANZAC Day Commemorative Services in New York.
The Dawn Service is the first of those events. It will be held rain or shine – and attendees are encouraged to come prepared with warm clothing and an umbrella in case of inclement weather.
The service will be co-hosted by the Australian and New Zealand Consuls General.
Due to the nature of the Service, respectful attire is requested.
