Review | Anzac Day Dawn Service

The Anzac Day Dawn Service, hosted by the Australian and New Zealand Consulates in Guangzhou was held this morning at the Shangri-La. In a poignant and moving service, all attendees paid respects to the Australians and New Zealanders “who have served and died in all wars, conflicts,and peacekeeping operations”

Observed on 25 April each year, Anzac Day was originally devised to honour the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps who fought at Gallipoli against the Ottoman Empire during World War I. 

It is now a time for reflection and gratitude, and AustCham was proud to participate in the 2018 service. Lest we forget.

澳新军团日的黎明悼念仪式,由澳大利亚和新西兰领事统率在广州香格里拉酒店举行。所有人在一片肃穆庄严中向那些为了悼念那些为和平而牺牲的澳新军团英雄致敬。每年4月25日是Anzac Day,是为了纪念1915年4月25日第一次世界大战中澳新联军在加利波利抵抗土耳其军队的伟大历史时刻。
