Anzac Day 2020 was like no other year. With restrictions in place due to COVID-19, there was not the usual Anzac Day dawn service and parades. Instead driveways were filled with candles and families honouring our servicemen and women. I’m sure that this will become a tradition for many families.
For those commemorating at home again this year, you can hear The Ode, The Last Post, the Minute’s Silence and Rouse on the ABC from 6am.
Driveway Dawn Service
Many Australians will take part in a dawn service at 6 am on April 25th. If you are unable to attend a service, you may choose to walk to the end of your driveways, out on balconies or verandahs and hold a candle to fallen heroes.
Why not even catch up with the neighbours for a gunfire breakfast after the dawn service.
