Australians in The Netherlands

2013 ANZAC Day invitation The Hague, The Netherlands

Renee and dad

Australians and New Zealanders around the world will commemorate ANZAC day next Thursday, 25th April.  In previous years, I’ve been very proud to watch my dad (ex-navy) march in Brisbane, which I’ve written about on my Professional Parents blog before.

If you’d like to read more about this special day, visit the ANZAC Day Wikipedia entry.  Each year, many also make apilgrimage to Gallipoli.

If you’re in The Netherlands, there is a Remembrance and Wreath Laying Ceremony in The Hague.  You can download a copy of the PDF invitation here:
