This ANZAC day remembers 100 years since the Gallipoli campaign in which thousands of Australian and New Zeland soldiers stormed the beaches on the Gallipoli Peninsula, in what is now Turkey, and lost their lives.

A service is being held at the Western Cemetery, Arbroath on Sunday, April 26 to commemorate the tragic loss.

The ceremony is arranged by the New Zealand Society (Scotland) with the co-operation of the Royal British Legion (Arbroath). Guests are requested to arrive by 11.15 a.m. The service will commence at 11.30 a.m. where wreaths will be laid at the graves of New Zealand Airmen and the Last Post is played.

All are invited to the Royal British Legion clubrooms, Helen Street, for refreshments after the Service.
