"ANZAC Day is a time for reflection, thankfulness and remembrance, and this year marks the 102nd anniversary of the ANZAC landings at Gallipoli. During the Centenary of World War 1 in Hobart we will remember not only the original ANZACs who served at Gallipoli and the Western Front, but commemorate more than a century of service by Australian servicemen and women,” Ald Hickey said.
The Chairman of the RSL (Tasmania) Hobart ANZAC Day Commemorative Committee, Mr Terry Roe said: “This year we have these significant activities that we are recognising.”
Firstly, the 100th anniversary of the following significant WW 1 battles:
- Battle of Bullecourt – 11 April 1917
- Battle of Polygon Wood – 20 September 1917
- Battle of Passchendaele – 12 October 1917
- Battle of Beersheba – 31 October 1917
“This year also marks the 70th anniversary of the Australian Defence Force being involved in peacekeeping operations, when in 1947 four Australians, being the world’s first United Nations peacekeepers, were deployed to the first UN peacekeeping mission - the United Nations Good Offices Commission to Indonesia (UNGOC).
