Australia’s Servicemen and women
ANZAC DAY and
A time to reflect with pride & gratitude
This year will mark ninety years since the first
brave young Australian soldiers rushed ashore at
Gallipoli, unaware they would create a legacy and
an enduring identity that defines today’s
The legacy of Anzac lies at the spiritual heart of
this great nation. The legacy is for all of us, an
eternal possession we should value and cherish forever.
Our Anzac legend, which embodies the values of courage, determination
and mateship, defines our national character.
Anzac Day and Remembrance Day are significant dates in Australia’s
commemorative calendar. On these two days, we remember the young
lives lost and pay tribute to the many who have died at war. We pause
to reflect upon the loss of men and women, brothers and sisters, sons
and daughters, and mates, whose bright futures were cut short,
defending our democracy and the values we uphold.
Many communities have their own war memorials, which record the
names of those lost and which stand as an everlasting reminder of the
high cost of war. It is the responsibility of all of us to continue to
encourage young Australians to seek a greater understanding of the
Anzac spirit and encourage them to ensure it is never lost.
As the ninetieth anniversary of the landing at Anzac Cove on 25th
of April 1915 together with the sixtieth anniversary of the end of
World War II draws close, I felt it was timely to produce this reference
guide to commemoration services. Included are suggestions for orders
of service for Anzac Day and Remembrance Day. By participating in
such services we will do our part to make certain all Australians who
served at war are not forgotten.
