Tuesday 25th April 2017 marked the 102nd anniversary of the landing of Anzac Troops at Gallipoli. Anzac, short for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, officially became Anzac Day on 25th April 1916.

Anzac Day ceremonies are held each year to commemorate the lives of Australians who died in the war and includes the remembrance of all Australians killed in military operations. Commemorative services are held at dawn – the time of the original landing in Gallipoli.

Ranger Drilling had the honour of laying a wreath at the Roy Hill Anzac Day ceremony in memory of all Australian and New Zealand forces who served in WWI. The ceremony was held at the Roy Hill Village at dawn. Jim Carnegie from Roy Hill put together a beautiful service. Wreaths were supplied by Roy Hill, Downer and ISS, we were also honored with the presence of having both the Bagpipes and Bugler play for us in such a remote location.

We invite you all to watch the beautiful footage captured from the morning.
