Anzac Day 2019 in Korea
Republic of Korea (South)
The 2019 Anzac Day dawn service will take place on Thursday 25th April at 0630 in the Main Hall of the Korean War Memorial in Yongsan, Seoul. This year’s Anzac Day marks the 104th anniversary of the landing at Gallipoli in World War I by a Commonwealth force which included the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC).
The shared experience of the ANZACs formed the “Anzac legend”, which has become an important part of the national identity of both nations. The Anzac service not only honours those who fought at Gallipoli, but also acknowledges and commemorates the service and sacrifice of all the men and women who served New Zealand, its allies and former adversaries in wars and peacekeeping operations.
This year we will again be honoured by the participation of a number of Commonwealth veterans of the Korean War, including New Zealanders and Australians. All members of the public are invited to join the service.
