Motion text

That this House remembers the heroic campaign that followed the landings of Allied forces at Anzac Cove, Gallipoli, on 25 April 1915; joins with all Australians and New Zealanders in commemorating the bravery of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps who, together with their British colleagues and other allies, made the ultimate sacrifice in the defence of freedom; expresses its pride at the unbreakable bond that exists between the people of our three nations who are bound together by language, history, culture and in sharing one Crown, with Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as head of State; and commends all those involved in the organisation of this year's ANZAC Day commemorations in London, which marks the centenary of the first ANZAC commemorations in London in 1916.
