ANZAC DAY 2

Like our Commonwealth cousins in the Southern Hemisphere, The Great War as a war that changed the relationship between the Imperial power that was Britain and the colonial territories known as Australia, Canada, and New Zealand. The nascent awareness of our differences from those who lived in the United Kingdom started during the Boer War (1902) but came to fruition when the colonies’ home governments took action to maintain their units in separate Corps of the British Expeditionary Forces. This independence, this new found asserting of sovereignty was in the cooperation of a larger interdependence between the motherland and its empire.

 

ANZAC Day is a national day of remembrance for Australia and New Zealand and we join you in this day acknowledging the cost of freedom earned so dearly by so many.
