Dawn Service at Buttes new British Cemetry on Anzac Day 25th April 2013

As in past years, Anzac Day 2013 will start with a joint Australia/New Zealand (A/NZ) dawn service at the Buttes New British Cemetery at Polygon Wood.

The Dawn Service will commence at 0600 and will be followed at 0645 by a breakfast hosted by the Mayor of Zonnebeke at OC ‘t Zonnerad, Tresoriersstraat 5, 8980 Zonnebeke. 

Please note, the Dawn Service is not included in the programme for those travelling on the New Zealand Embassy bus as the bus will not arrive in time.  Anyone wishing to attend the Dawn Service will need to make their own travel arrangements to and from the service. 

The Anzac Day Dawn Service is organised by the local community of Zonnebeke and the New Zealand Embassy is very grateful for their assistance.  For further information about the Dawn Service, we would encourage you to please contact the organiser directly:  Mr Freddy Declerck,
