ANZAC Day with a difference

ANZAC Day with a difference

Monday, April 20, 2020

With traditional ANZAC Day services cancelled this year, there are still plenty of ways you can get involved and remember the sacrifices made.

Here are some ideas:

  • Driveways at Dawn: The RSL have asked we remember our soldiers by standing for a minute of silence with a lit candle in our driveways at dawn, while The Last Post is played.
  • Make your own poppy: The poppy as a symbol of Remembrance Day began with the observations of brigade surgeon Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae as to how these graceful flowers grew wild upon the ground broken by battle. 
  • Live stream the Dawn Service: View the live stream of the National Commemorative Service from the Australian War Memorial in Canberra.
  • Veterans of Whittlesea: Upload a photograph of a veteran whose story touches yours.
  • Westgarthtown and WWI: Juxtaposing the treatment of citizens of German descent living in Westgarthtown with the experiences of their relatives who were fighting and dying for Australia during World War 1, Westgarthtown & WWI is a moving documentary presented by the Friends of Westgarthtown.
