Anzac Memorial Service today in Weymouth

Anzac Memorial Service today in Weymouth

Australians have paused at Dawn Services across the country this Anzac Day, to give thanks to those who've served our nation in battle.

Thousands of people are gathering on the rugged shores of Turkey's Gallipoli peninsula to mark the 103rd anniversary of New Zealand and Australian forces making their first bloody landings there. A lot of people were lucky and got to grab their bags, they just had them in front of them and just took them with them when they were leaving.

"The whole world at the moment is also on its toes, not only for peace in conflicts, but we are also talking about peace as far as the climate condition is concerned", he said.

"They've been really supportive. we're on our way to do that this afternoon, make sure everything's sorted out before our flight home on Friday". And for this, we will be eternally grateful.

Ending with the last post, the sun then began to rise over the perfectly lush garden beds at Leslie Park on an important day of remembrance for Australians around the nation.

"Their deaths created waves of grief which swept across our homelands".




"The passing of time has not diminished the tragedy of what occurred here".

Earlier, there was drama for a group of young Australian and New Zealand tourists bound for the service at Anzac Cove, when their bus burst into flames.

The bus was destroyed along with passengers' possessions but it's believed no-one was hurt and the group travelled on to Anzac Cove on another bus.

The sheer magnitude of the "butcher's bill" was unprecedented, Governor-General of New Zealand Dame Patsy Reddy told the service.

Wairoa District Anzac Commemorative Services are Taihoa Marae, Mahia Ave 9am, and Wairoa War Memorial Hall 11.15am.
