“25th April – ANZAC DAY 2018 – CHIANG MAI – DAWN SERVICE”
The Centenary of Anzac 2014 to 2018 is Australia’s most important period of national commemoration. Marking 100 years since our involvement in the First World War, the Anzac Centenary is a time to honour the service and sacrifice of our original ANZACs, and the generations of Australian servicemen and women who have defended our values and freedoms, in wars, conflicts and peace operations throughout a Century of Service. You can attend commemoration services is Chiang Mai to be part of this important day.
Commemorations are also held on this day in Thailand at Hellfire Pass in Kanchanaburi Province to remember the thousands of POW’s who suffered during the construction of the Burma-Thailand railway during the Second World War. 2018 will mark the 75th anniversary of the railway’s completion. You can find more information on Anzac Portal.
