ANZAC events take place at CWGC sites around the world

CWGC staff have been busy helping with ANZAC services at the commission's sites around the world this week.

From India to Thailand, from the UK to Iran, and from Belgium to Burma, there were ceremonies marking ANZAC Day.

The Southern Cross flags of Australia and New Zealand were lowered at such iconic CWGC sites as the Ypres (Menin Gate) Memorial, in Ieper, and the Singapore Memorial, at Kranji War Cemetery.

Our picture round-up begins, with the first ever ANZAC service on the island of Madagascar, where the country’s President and other senior officials attended the CWGC Diego Suarez War Cemetery.
