Territorians will pause on Anzac Day tomorrow to honour the service and sacrifice of all Australian men and women who have served in defence of our country.
Services will be held across the NT including 6am dawn services at the Darwin Cenotaph; Darwin North RSL; Anzac Hill, Alice Springs; and Memorial Park, Palmerston.
Country Liberals Senator for the Northern Territory, Nigel Scullion, said Anzac Day was one of the most important dates on our calendar.
“More than 50,000 Australians are estimated to have fought in the Gallipoli campaign where some 8700 lost their lives and almost 18,000 were wounded,” Senator Scullion said.
“On Anzac Day, I encourage Territorians to take a moment to reflect on the brave men and women who have served our nation in all wars, conflicts and on peacekeeping operations.
“We are forever grateful to the men and women, past and present, who have served in our army, navy and air force.
“This year marks the centenary of the Battle of Bullecourt in France, the Battle of Messines, the Battle of Polygon Wood and the Battle of Beersheeva, as well as the 75th anniversaries of the Fall of Singapore, the Bombing of Darwin and the Kokoda campaign. They are all important events that our nation will never forget.”
