New York: ANZAC Commemorative Sunday Service

New York: ANZAC Commemorative Sunday Service

Australians and New Zealanders commemorate ANZAC Day on 25 April to recognise the sacrifices of New Zealand and Australian servicemen and servicewomen - not only in defending their country but in upholding their nations' firmly held commitment to peace and security. 2015 marks the 100th anniversary of the landing of Australian and New Zealand soldiers on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey. 

To mark this occasion, the Australian and New Zealand Consuls-General will co-host a commemorative Sunday Service.
