Virtual Ceremony: ANZAC Day 2021

Earlier today the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 25 (representing the San Francisco Bay area) partnered with the Australian American Chamber of Commerce and the New Zealand American Association of San Francisco to stream a small ANZAC day service from Hero’s Grove in Golden Gate National Park on Sunday, 25 April, which began at 10am. This is a recording of that streamed event.

The Royal Canadian Legion was present at the service to represent the Royal Newfoundland Regiment, which joined the ANZAC forces at Gallipoli. 2021 is an important year for the Regiment and Gallipoli, as only days ago the final caribou statue was installed in Gallipoli, completing the Trail of the Caribou (i.e., the sites where the Royal Newfoundland regiment fought during World War I).
