ANZAC Day remembers the campaign waged by the Australian-New Zealand Army Corps in Gallipoli against the Turkish forces during World War I. While not part of Canada at the time, one of often forgotten participants of this engagement were the Royal Newfoundland Regiment (see here and here). This year the Royal Canadian Legion will be participating in the services below, so please join us.
Please note the location has been changed to the Log Cabin at the Presidio, San Francisco.
