For Australians and New Zealanders in the Netherlands who would like to commemorate ANZAC Day, there is a ceremony being organised by the Australian and New Zealand Embassies.  Details are below, and *please RSVP by 18 April*

I’ve attended several times now and it’s always a moving ceremony.  You may like to read about the 2015 ANZAC Day Ceremony in The Hague and the 2013 ANZAC Day Ceremony in The Hague.
