ANZAC DAY at Gosford RSL.
This year, Gosford RSL has a complete schedule to mark ANZAC Day. It’s always a sombre event and one that we should take pride in respecting.
Why do we commemorate Anzac Day?
ANZAC Day, the 25th of April each year, is the day Australia commemorates with services and marches in cities and towns and throughout the world where servicemen, servicewomen and peacekeepers are stationed, to remember all those who lost their lives in service to their country, in all wars.
The date of the landing at ANZAC, the 25th April was chosen to be the day that would become our national day of commemoration.
Initially, ANZAC day was a mark of respect for those who served and sacrificed their lives in the Great War for Civilisation, the war as many hoped, to end all wars.
However, because of the vicissitudes of man, the date has become the day on which the nation remembers those who served and those who made the ultimate sacrifice in all the conflicts that Australia has participated up to the present day in the continuing struggle to preserve our freedoms in the attempt to rid the world of tyranny.

At the going down of the sun
and in the morning
We will remember them.
We will remember them.
Lest we forget.
