Commemorating Anzac Day

On Anzac Day, one of the most important dates in our calendar, Federal Member for Pearce, Christian Porter, will pause and honour the service and sacrifice of all Australian men and women who have served and continue to serve in defence of our country.

“More than 50,000 Australians are estimated to have fought in the Gallipoli campaign, where some 8,700 lost their lives and almost 18,000 were wounded,” Mr Porter said.

“On Anzac Day, it is important to take a moment and reflect on the brave men and women who have served our nation in all wars, conflicts and on peacekeeping operations.

“We are forever grateful to the men and women, past and present, who have served in our Army, Navy and Air Force.

“I would encourage everyone in Pearce to attend a service on Anzac Day or take time to pause, reflect and remember those who have served and those who have given their lives for our country.

“Lest We Forget.”
