2017 ANZAC Day Dawn Service

 

 

The 2017 ANZAC Day dawn service will take place on Tuesday 25th April at 6:30am in the Main Hall of the Korean War Memorial. 

 

This year’s ANZAC Day marks the 102nd Anniversary of the landing at Gallipoli in World War I by a Commonwealth force which included the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC). The shared experience of the ANZACs formed the “ANZAC legend”, which has become an important part of the national identity of both nations. The ANZAC service not only honours those who fought at Gallipoli, but also acknowledges and commemorates the service and sacrifice of all the men and women who served Australia, its allies and former adversaries in wars and peacekeeping. For more information on ANZAC Day, please visit: http://www.anzacportal.dva.gov.au/

 

This year we will again be honoured by the participation of many Commonwealth veterans of the Korean War, including Australians and New Zealanders.  All members of the public are invited to join the service.

 

The service will be followed by a guest-only breakfast at the War Memorial’s Wedding Hall. There are limited places available at the breakfast for members of the public. Members of the Australian community wanting to attend the breakfast should send an e-mail with the ‘ANZAC Day Breakfast’ in the subject line to the Australian Embassy at defence.seoul@dfat.gov.au.  You will be advised by return email if you have secured a place at the breakfast.
