ANZAC Commemorated at College

103 years ago today, young Australian and New Zealand men – just like those who are residents of the College today – went ashore to fight and die for a cause they believed to be just. Three years later, 100 years ago today, in another great battle of World War I, young Australian and New Zealand men fought and died in the second battle for the French village of Villers-Bretonneux.

At St Paul’s, at an ANZAC Commemoration Service held in the Chapel today, as we remember all who have fought and died in war, we especially remember the 170 members of the College who enlisted in the First World War, and the 20 who died, and also the members of the College who died in the Boer War, the Second World War and in Vietnam.

Lest we forget.
