ANZAC DAY AT DUNEDIN

Rights Information

A gloomy, wet day doesn't discourage large crowds from gathering for an Anzac Day parade in Dunedin. The horse-drawn gun carriage, clad with bouquets of flowers, and accompanying escort is part of the so-called "Boxer Service" – the RSA Dominion President Dr Ernest Boxer's promotion of a uniform nationwide observance based on a symbolic re-enactment of a military burial. Later that same day another familiar post-war ritual; the official unveiling of the North East Valley War Memorial.
