WIA ANZAC commemorations

| March 13, 2015

While World War I centenary activities began in 2014, the focus by the Australian community has always been on ANZAC Day, celebrated on the 25 April each year.

ANZAC Day initially honoured the Australian and New Zealand Army Corp, or ANZAC, soldiers who took part in WWI, and has since been extended to commemoratively reflect on all conflicts involving Australian and New Zealand forces.

The Wireless Institute of Australia, WIA is supporting the many community events being held in Australia and the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey, with its own ANZAC Centenary Award, special callsigns and other activities.

The ANZAC 100 program coordinator is Fred Swainston, VK3DAC, who can be contacted via vk3dac@wia.org.au and further programme details are on the WIA website.
