Anzac Day bus service continues to be popular
As in recent years, the New Zealand Embassy funded and organised a free bus service for New Zealanders wishing to attend the official Anzac Day commemorations in West Flanders. The Embassy-funded bus service, which includes a free guided tour for participants after the official services, continues to be popular. Despite Anzac Day falling on a normal working day during the week, nearly thirty people used the service this year.
The bus service provides the opportunity for New Zealanders to participate in New Zealand’s official Anzac Day service in Messines before going on to Ieper for the joint service with Australia under the historic Menin Gate.
The New Zealand Embassy wishes to thank the people who make Anzac Day possible each year, including our partners in the region in Zonnebeke, Mesen and Ieper, as well as our colleagues at the Australian Embassy.
We look forward to seeing you all at Anzac Day in 2013.
