Anzac- the acronym of Australian and New Zealand Army Corps:
created early in the Great War of 1914-18
The Anzac first saw action at Gallipoli on 25 April 1915. The small cove where the Anzac troops landed was quickly dubbed Anzac Cove. Soon the word was being used to describe all Australian and New Zealand soldiers who fought on the Gallipoli Peninsula. Eventually, it came to mean any Australian or New Zealand soldier.
UHMCC honoured this year’s Anzac Day with a laying of a wreath. Our President Pancha Narayanan, our valued volunteer Anthony, Pohswan, Kannan, Abhi, Maha and their family attended the Dawn Service. Kannan and Sahana respectfully laid the wreath on behalf of UHMCC with the messages “Lest We Forget”
Given the current COVID situation, it is poignant for us in New Zealand to embrace and honour the peace fought for us in the past; for our future, as created by allied forces and the Anzac’s. Peace for NZ is still alive today — Lest We Forget…
