Lest we forget.
The acronym ‘ANZAC’ refers to the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps.
Australian and New Zealand soldiers were part of the allied expedition that set out to conquer the Gallipoli peninsula on April 25, 1915. These were called Anzacs, and the pride they took in that name has continued to this day.
Commemorative services are performed around the country at dawn. More formal commemorative ceremonies are held at war memorials around the country.
To pay our respects on this Anzac Day, Mirus Australia prepared a poppy making station.
