This year is the 100th Anniversary of the landings on the Gallipoli Peninsular, which included members of the Australian New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC). This force was drawn from towns and country communities across our nation and included a number of our forebears served and sacrificed.
While serving in the front lines, they were not alone in their sacrifice, as also both members of their own families and their communities, back in Australia, also continued make their own sacrifices and contributions to this national effort. It is in remembrance of all of these efforts, that our 2015 Clan Dinner will be dedicated and themed.
