Anzac Day marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War. Australians recognise April 25 as an occasion of national commemoration. Commemorative services are held at dawn, the time of the original landings at Gallipoli and, later in the day, ex-servicemen and women meet and join in marches through the major cities and many smaller townships around the country. It is a day when Australians reflect on war, and peace, and on those who paid the ultimate sacrifice so we could continue living in a free country .

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
