An­zac Day medals call

Kaikoura Star - - FRONT PAGE -

An­zac Day com­mem­o­ra­tions will be held this Fri­day, April 25. Those wish­ing to take part in the pa­rade are asked to as­sem­ble at the West End carpark at 10.20am. The ser­vice at the Me­mo­rial Hall will start at 11am, fol­lowed by the lay­ing of the wreaths at the ceno­taph in the me­mo­rial gar­dens.

Kaik­oura RSA pres­i­dent Spiro Cos­matos is call­ing on all fam­i­lies of ser­vice­men to help seek out for­got­ten medals of World War I, and for de­scen­dants to wear these with pride this An­zac Day to re­spect their fam­ily mem­bers’ ser­vice and sac­ri­fice.

This year’s ser­vices will be par­tic­u­larly poignant around the coun­try, as 2014 marks 100 years since the start of World War 1.
