ANZAC Day - Dawn Service

Vanuatu police band playing the national anthem of Vanuatu, Australia and New Zealand during the ANZAC Dawn Service this morning.

Held every year at dawn at the cenotaph overlooking Port Vila and the harbour. While in particular it commemorates the landing of Australian and New Zealand troops at Gallipoli on 25 April 1915, it also pays hommage to those who fought and died in all wars.
