Gurkhas from The Second, Battalion, The Royal Gurkha Rifles support the memorial event for ANZAC Day in Brunei. ANZAC Day is one of Australia’s most important national days — a time for Australians to recognise the service of 1.5 million Australian men and women who have served during wars, conflicts, peacekeeping and humanitarian operations. It is also a time to reflect on the 102,000 Australians who paid the ultimate sacrifice in that service.
This morning, the Australian High Commission held a Dawn Service at the Brunei-Australian Memorial at Muara Beach, where Australian troops first landed back in 1945 as part of the Liberation of Borneo. We remembered the courage and sacrifice of all ANZACs, reaffirmed our commitment to peace, and celebrated the spirit of service to others that ANZAC Day represents.
Lest We Forget.
