The heavens opened with a downpour of rain as nearly five thousand people gathered in the pre-dawn light at the State War Memorial in Adelaide to begin this year’s Anzac commemorations.
Anzac Day services have been held across Malaysia, one of Australia’s most important defence partners in the region.
As the sun rose over the Gallipoli Peninsula on Anzac Day, Chief of Navy Vice Admiral Tim Barrett reflected on the sacrifices of all Australian service personnel who have served the nation, and those who continue to serve today.
The Royal Australian Navy Band Tasmania will be representing the Australian Defence Force at King Island, off the north-west coast of Tasmania, for Anzac Day this year.
Anzac Day is the day we commemorate the service of all men and women who have served in the Australian Defence Force and remember those who have made the supreme sacrifice. For those of you planning to attend Dawn Services or commemorations, there is likely a Navy contingent nearby.
