Commemorating the ANZAC Centenary - Last updated: 02/04/2015
In 2015 we commemorate the ANZAC Centenary, and to acknowledge this we will be remembering the men and women of the ACT who served in WWI by 'calling the roll'. Starting in April, we will post about each of these people on our blog and share this information on social media. We encourage you to look for these posts, read and share them. We also invite you to search, browse and contribute to the ACT Memorial database www.memorial.act.gov.au and to visit the ACT Memorial in person on London Circuit, Civic, opposite Civic Square. The ACT Memorial honours the men and women of the ACT who served their country in war, conflict, peacekeeping and humanitarian missions, some of whom paid the supreme sacrifice.
