SAFE-T-BULLETIN
Issue 395 - 23 April 2014

 
 
 

Dear Subscriber,

100 years of ANZAC. Between 2014 and 2018 Australia will commemorate the ANZAC Centenary marking 100 years since Australia’s involvement in the First World War. During the ANZAC Centenary we will remember not only the original ANZACs from Australia and New Zealand who served at Gallipoli and the Western Front, but commemorate more than a century of service by Australian servicemen and women. NSCA staff around Australia remember and honour all of our fallen who served in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations, whose sacrifice has helped define us as a people and as a nation. Lest we forget.
