ANZAC Day

Anzac Day is commemorated each year on 25th April.

The Australian Government Department of Veterans’ Affairs provides the following information on Anzac Day for 2010:
The soldiers who served on the Gallipoli Peninsula created a legend, adding the word ‘Anzac’ to our vocabulary, and creating the notion of the Anzac spirit.

Anzac Day in Australia:
Anzac Day services are held in almost every city and town across the nation. Major ceremonies are held at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra, and at state memorials. For details on regional and local Anzac Day ceremonies, contact your local RSL Sub-branch or ex-service organisation.

The Families and Friends of First AIF  (FFFAIF) supports local Anzac Day marches but does not provide a contingent to the marches in the State capital cities as these are viewed as primarily for veterans and descendants.  

The Australian World War One Descendants (AWWOD), is a group of like minded people who have joined together to organise a group of descendants to march on Anzac Day in remembrance of our forebears who served in World War One.
