Anzac Day Over the Decades

Since Anzac Day was marked for the first time in 1916, Kiwis and Australians around the world have gathered to reflect on New Zealand and Australia’s national day of remembrance. The day holds special significance, because it is an opportunity to remember and honour the service and sacrifice of those who have gone before us.

The Museum archives unit documents how the Royal New Zealand Air Force has always been present on Anzac Day, at wreath-layings, parades and gatherings from small-town New Zealand to our larger cities and abroad.

These images show that then, just as now, airmen have formed an integral part of our nation’s Anzac Day commemorations.

Lest we forget.
