Anzac Day is one of the most important national occasions for both Australians and New Zealanders. In 2020, for the first time in history, Anzac
Day Services across New Zealand have been cancelled due to COVID-19. Even
though public Anzac Services are unable to go ahead, it does not mean that the tradition of remembering and commemorating our veterans and service personnel should
be cancelled too.
The RSA and New Zealand Defence Force would like you to join us to
remember those who given their lives for our country. This is a time to pay
respect and acknowledge the many thousands of our military people who are serving
or have served, who are called upon to support New Zealand in times of war,
conflict and disasters.
Although Dawn Service in New Zealand has now passed you can still commemorate and
remember. Whether you are planning to conduct your own Anzac Service at home,
or you are located in another part of the world and would like to run observe
Anzac Day abroad – you can.
New Zealand has made available the Dawn Service broadcast on-demand. Thank you to Radio New Zealand for making this available so we can
honour our heroes.
