Tomorrow is ANZAC Day.
On the 25th April each year we remember the bravery and sacrifice of all soldiers who have served our country in times of war.
ANZAC, stands for
The ANZAC tradition began during World War I when Australian and allied troops landed in 1915 at Gallipoli, Turkey.
This year is particularly significant as we commemorate 100 years since the soldiers arrived at Anzac Cove in Gallipoli.
The Last Post is often played on a bugle to remember those who fought in wars and didn’t return home.
