ANZAC day events across the North Sydney electorate

  • April 4, 2016

A century ago, the focus of the First World War turned to the Western Front. The battles and victories of this era helped define the War, and define early Australia.

The soldiers of the Australian Army earned a reputation, which continues to this day, as a professional and formidable fighting force that works hard, takes on the most significant challenges and succeeds under difficult circumstances.

The bravery of the AIF was complemented by the courage of the Australian Army Nursing Service (AANS). These women worked in hospitals, on hospital ships and trains, or in casualty clearing stations closer to the front line.

There are many ANZAC Day services on throughout North Sydney and they are an important opportunity to commemorate the service and sacrifice of all Australians who have served our country with distinction and honour.
