On Saturday 25 April 2015, our nation will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corp – the ANZACs – landing at Gallipoli.
Anzac Day is a day of national commemoration when we pause to remember Australia’s servicemen and women who served our nation with pride and valour in wars, conflicts and peace operations.
You are invited to come along to the Bassendean War Memorial, which is now located in the newly created Civic Gardens at the corner of Guildford Road and Wilson Street Bassendean, and join in the Town’s Anzac Day Commemorative Service.
