Media Opportunities for ANZAC Day 2018
By: RSL Queensland
This year, the anniversary of the ANZAC landings at Gallipoli coincides with the centenary of the Battle of Villers-Bretonneux where an intense battle was fought to end German occupation of the French town. Hundreds of lives were lost in the battle and the people of Villers-Bretonneux still fly the Australian flag over the town.
RSL Queensland State President Stewart Cameron CSC said ANZAC Day remained an important day for reflection and reconnection.
"It goes beyond the anniversary of the landing on Gallipoli in 1915," Mr Cameron said. "It is the day on which we remember all Australians who served and died in war and on operational service past and present. Their spirit and allegiance underpin our national identity."
