Thank you to the ANZAC Day Dawn Trust for the privilege to represent New Zealand in this ANZAC Commemorative Service. The ANZAC Day Dawn Service begins at 4.30am, for us, we meet at 1am with our choir master Richard Haeata. Already we remember the significance of the ANZAC relationship and our own Veteran’s we see no longer. Karakia & practice are over and we gather our korowai and head to catch our train with thousands of others to Martin Place. We see our New Zealand contingent and our Consulate General and know there’s no other place we should be, “We will remember Them”, “Lest we forget”.
