2018 Anzac Day National Commemorative Service at Pukeahu

We were blessed with clear skies and warm breezes for the National Commemorative Service at Pukeahu this morning, where thousands of people gathered to pay their respects to all those New Zealanders who have served their country in times of war, and to pay homage to all those who lost their lives.

The Honourable Justice Sir William Young is acting as Administrator for the Government while Dame Patsy is representing New Zealand at the Gallipoli commemorations. Sir William delivered the Anzac Address.
