ANZAC DAY - Monday 25 April 2016




ANZAC was the name given to the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps soldiers who landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey early on the morning of 25 April 1915 during the First World War (1914-1918).

As a result, one day in the year has involved the whole of Australia in solemn ceremonies of remembrance, gratitude and national pride for all our men and women who have fought and died in all wars. That day is ANZAC Day - 25 April.

25 April is the day on which we remember all Australians who served and died in war and on operational service. The spirit of Anzac, with its qualities of courage, mateship, and sacrifice, continues to have meaning and relevance for our sense of national identity.

In Pohnpei,  the Australian Embassy will host a dawn service on 25 April that will commence precisely at 5:30AM at the Australian residential compound, next to Cupids Bar & Grill, in Nanpohnmal.

The event is open to the public and in particular veterans and serving military members of any nationality, and Australian and new Zealand expatriated and travellers.

For more information, please contact the Australian Embassy on 320 5448.
