Service for Anzac Day in Aberdeen
A service of remembrance and reflection to mark Anzac Day will be held in St Machars Cathedral on Friday 25th April at 7pm.
The celebration of Anzac Day goes beyond the anniversary of the landing on Gallipoli in 1915. It is the day we remember all Australians and New Zealanders who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations. The spirit of ANZAC, with its human qualities of courage, mateship, and sacrifice, continues to have meaning and relevance for the sense of the national identities of the two countries.
