Issue 370 - 24 April 2013

Dear Subscriber,

ANZAC Day marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces at Gallipoli during the First World War. NSCA staff around Australia remember and honour all of our fallen 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 our sense of national identity. Lest we forget.
