On Saturday morning, 25th April, we were up early to join in with our local community's Dawn Service for ANZAC Day.
ANZAC Day is a day of remembrance for New Zealanders and Australians, of those who died serving during war, and it honours returned service men and women, past and present. This year marked one hundred years since Australian and New Zealand Army Corp (ANZAC) landed at Gallipoli in Turkey, the site of New Zealand's first major battle in World War 1.
The Dawn Service was very moving and emotional, and this year there was huge turnout from our little community, just like all over New Zealand and Australia, and other countries around the world that held commemorative services.
Lest we forget.
