Anzac Moon

Waning Gibbous April Moon

ANZAC (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) Day is the anniversary of the landing of troops from Australia and New Zealand on the Gallipoli Peninsula, Turkey, in World War I on April 25, 1915. The bravery of all military personnel who participated in this campaign and the lives of those who died in all military actions are remembered.

Anzac Day Sunrise

Anzac Day is traditionally a public holiday. Many ceremonies, marches and celebrations are held on this day, and veterans of the Wars will march with their community in a parade which usually ends at the local RSL Club for the RSL Service.

Community Groups take part in the Parade. They are the Police, Fire Brigade, Special Services and members of the public will march wearing their own medals, if veterans, or the medals of their parents and Grandparents. The medals are worn with pride, and is a symbol for participation in one or more of the wars. Navy, Airforce, Military, Religious, Submarines and Service organisations are all represented with medals, and this is when the medals are worn with recognition of participation.

All participants also wear a sprig of Rosemary for Remembrance. Rosemary is traditionally worn on Anzac Day, and sometimes on Remembrance DayRosemary has particular significance for Australians as it is found growing wild on the Gallipoli peninsula.

since ancient times this aromatic herb has been believed to have properties to improve the memory. Perhaps because of this, rosemary became an emblem of both fidelity and remembrance in literature and folklore. Traditionally, sprigs of rosemary are worn on Anzac Day and sometimes on Remembrance Day, and are usually handed out by Legacy and the RSL.
