ANZAC Day 2015 Centenary Commemoration in Manila – 25 April 2015
On Saturday 25 April 2015 the Australian and New Zealand Embassies in Manila will jointly host the Centenary of ANZAC Day Dawn Service ceremony, at the Libingan ng mga Bayani (Tomb of the Unknown Soldier), Fort Bonifacio, Makati City, Metro Manila. The Dawn Service will commence at 5:30am.
ANZAC Day marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand Forces during the First World War. Anzac’s is the name given to members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps who landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey early on the morning of 25 April 1915.
“The Gallipoli landing and subsequent battles which took place a century ago at what is now known as Anzac Cove was a defining moment for Australia and New Zealand. The courage, resilience and mateship shown by the first Anzacs has had a lasting influence on our national character, and what has become known as the ‘Anzac spirit’ has become an essential element of our national identity. Indeed, ANZAC Day now commemorates the service and sacrifice of our service men and women across all wars and peacekeeping operations, ” said Australian Ambassador Bill Tweddell.
"As we commemorate a seminal time in our nationhood and ponder the loss of many thousands of cherished sons of Australia, New Zealand and Turkey we should reflect on the horrors of war and the enormously destructive forces of nationalism and militarism which sadly are all too common today. For Australia and New Zealand Gallipoli was the gateway to nationhood. The ANZAC spirit lives on today as we seek to forge a just international order that respects democracy, human rights, religious tolerance and peaceful means of conflict resolution, ” said New Zealand Ambassador David Strachan.
The ANZAC Day Dawn Service at Libingan ng mga Bayani is attended by members of the Australian and New Zealand communities, the Turkish Ambassador, representatives of the British, French and Indian Armed Forces, who also participated in the Allied Forces Dardanelles Campaign, as well as our partners from the Philippine Armed Forces, Police and other government offices. The Service is also open to all members of the public who wish to acknowledge the fallen of Australia and New Zealand.
Individuals or representatives of organisations who wish to lay a wreath are welcome to do so at the appropriate moment during the ceremony. Attendees are encouraged to wear medals; personal medals should be worn on the left breast; medals of family members should be worn on the right breast. The ceremony will commence at 05:30 am and attendees should arrive at the venue no later than 5:15 am.success wishes trump success bicornuate uterus pregnancy success connect for success internet success system lpr success stories measuring success quotes school success success visualization tattoo for success 16/8 intermittent fasting success stories best books for success business success quotes condom success rate customer success manager interview questions deep work: rules for focused success in a distracted world dress for success denver failure and success quotes family success centers nj great quotes about success iui success tips keys to success medmen lake success songs about hard work and success steps to success strategies for success success factors com crystals for luck and success eft the key to success heart ablation success rate iui success story ivf success rates under 35 pregnancy at 44 success stories quotes of success success rate of morning after pill during ovulation customer success manager job description define success heart transplant success rate kidney transplant success rates low fetal heart rate success stories metformin weight loss success stories 2019 money is the anthem of success morning affirmations for success no heartbeat at 8 weeks success stories picture of success purdue success factors sales success success academy charter school success day quotes success in latin success is the best revenge best success books car t cell therapy success rate college measured success continued success dress for success donations etsy success story fresh success marketing group journey to success keller williams success realty launching success measure of success national society for leadership and success palmers skin success fade cream podcast success skin success by palmers songs about success success academy calendar success books success factors bcm success inspirational motivational quotes success mindset motivational quotes success pictures success rate of bar rescue the success principles what to do after embryo transfer to increase success zoloft success stories 30 day success formula review 4 follicles ivf success rate a miner success ffxiv animal mating success horse bar rescue success rate best morning routine for success best morning routine for success cardiac ablation success rate cdc ivf success rates celebrate success quote coming off antidepressants success stories customer success metrics day trading success rate dress for success houston grace stirs up success great success hip labral tear surgery success rate how to measure success immunotherapy success rate increase implantation success innovative success systems reviews inspiring quotes about success is competition necessary for success ivf success rates by age john wooden pyramid of success poster kidney transplant success rates latin words for success letrozole success stories 2020 lexapro success stories lichen planopilaris success stories lipotropic injections success stories metrics for success metrics of success movies about success national society of leadership and success reviews natural pregnancy after 40 success stories optavia success stories overnight success path to success plan b success rate preseed success rate recipe for success road to success quote sacroiliac joint injection success rate societal messages suggest that which of the following is a roadblock to a female's social success? steps to success success coach success coaching success factors purdue success factors wellstar success leasing success meme success mortgage partners success persons success virtual learning center the five rules of success what does success mean to you what is customer success what is the success rate of urolift what success looks like winston churchill success quote dress for success for men glucomannan weight loss success stories hard work success quotes iui success rate by age la fitness lake success lichen planopilaris success stories maca root fertility success stories medmen lake success project success prp hair treatment success rate quest for success quotes about success and achievement rotator cuff surgery success rate spelling success success factors bcm success is not final quote words for success a miner success ffxiv cerebral success shark tank congratulations quotes for success continued success customer success engineer dress for success charlotte herniated disc surgery success rate iui success on first try laser treatment for toenail fungus success rate 2020 lipotropic injections success stories lmt success group measure success quotes meru the success motivational speeches for success my 600 lb life success stories quote about success ralph waldo emerson success poem
