Over recent years I’ve written about Anzac Day but rather than covering the same ground this year I’ve opted to publish a few images of last Wednesday’s 73rd Anzac Day Dawn Service. As usual it was held at Auckland’s War Memorial Museum Cenotaph. Anzac Day mornings are usually cold and wet but our 4 am start was greeted with clear skies and spring like temperatures.
In all my years of attending I’ve never seen such a large crowd but sadly the number of “old soldiers” is diminishing. Crowd numbers were reported to be 10000 plus.
I suspect the photographer above took this shot of the photo we placed on the cenotaph.
