ANZAC Day 2018

An ANZAC Day ceremony will be held at Rangoon War Cemetery on Wednesday 25 April 2018 commencing at 5:15 am (precisely).  Attendees should assemble by 5.00am. 

On ANZAC Day we reflect on the ideals of courage, endurance, sacrifice and mateship shown by Australians and New Zealanders who died in war.  ANZAC Day provides an opportunity to commemorate those who have died in war from all countries. As 2018 marks the 75th anniversary of the completion of the Thai-Burma Railway, this years’ service will hold special significance for Myanmar.  

The Rangoon War Cemetery is located just west of Pyay Road (3½ miles), at the end of the first lane south of the Hanthawaddy (BBS) roundabout.
