- New Zealand's Commemoration of Anzac Day is on the same day. ALSO A SAYING THAT EVERY PLACE SAYS IN NZ ON THE DAY!!!
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old; Age shall not weary them nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them.
- The number of New Zealanders attending Anzac Day events in New Zealand, and at Gallipoli, is NOT increasing. For most New Zealanders though, the day is an occasion on which to formally pay tribute and to remember.
- For many, the day serves as a reminder of the futility of war.
- Dawn Parades and other memorials nationwide are typically attended by the New Zealand Defence Force, the New Zealand Cadet Forces, members of the New Zealand Police, New Zealand Fire Service, Order of St John Ambulance Service (Youth and Adult Volunteers) as well as Scouting New Zealand, GirlGuiding New Zealand and other uniformed community service groups including in most places the local Pipe Band to lead or accompany the parade march, and sometimes a Brass Band to accompany the hymns.
