ANZAC Dawn Parade

On a cold April morning before sun rises,every year across Australia and New Zealand thousands of people gather around monuments to show respect and remember the soldiers who died in WW1.

The dawn parade is held on April 25th (ANZAC day) as this is the day ANZAC troops were fighting in Gallipoli.
There was an old man that played the bugle and the song was called the last post and thousands of people stood silently while dawn was breaking.

The Mayor of Auckland recited a poem and everybody listened respectfully, in remembrance he then laid a wreath.
