ANZAC Day, 25 April, is a day of national remembrance.
“Australians commemorated the first Anzac Day on 25 April 1916, which was 12 months after the first landings on Gallipoli. The anniversary has been observed every year since. With few exceptions – when Australians felt themselves threatened by invasion in 1942 and during the COVID-19 pandemic of more recent years – Anzac Day commemorations have always included a publicly attended dawn service and march ” https://anzacportal.dva.gov.au/resources/anzac-day-poster-2022
We have no World War One veterans left and so few veterans left now from World War Two but we can continue to remember them.
