Bert Collins with Mayor Asfour

​​​​This year, ANZAC Day will be unlike any other in history. For the first time in more than a century, there will be no dawn services, no marches, no mates sharing stories at the pub, and no two-up.

The tradition of remembering those who sacrificed for our freedoms will continue, just in a different way.  City of Canterbury Bankstown has launched 'Stand with Bert'

Albert 'Bert' Maurice Collins, a Bankstown local, and one of the oldest surviving World War II vets, at 104-year old. He has told us that won't be letting the Coronavirus stand in his way of marking this important day.

So we ask you to do the same. Join Bert this ANZAC day and stand at your front gate at 6am on Saturday 25 April to mark a minute silence for the servicemen and women who have served our country and paid the ultimate sacrifice. 

You can also stand by Bert and recite the ode.

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.

Find out more about Albert and h​is story. ​


 

Get into the ANZAC Day Spirit

There are many things you can do to get into the spirit of the day with your family. You can make ANZAC Biscuits, poppies, or a wreath. You can even share stories and photos of family members who have fought in the war, to make sure their memory lives on.

Share what you will be doing to mark ANZAC Day this year by visiting our Facebook page. You may want to record yourself reciting the ode or, if you are a talented musician, playing the bugle!

​National Broadcast

The ABC will broadcast the Australian War Memorial's service at 5.30am on Saturday 25 April.

Watch the broadcast on ABC TV, the ​ABC Australia Facebook​ page, or on the ABC Australia YouTube channel.​

There will also be a 10am virtual and streamed service from the ANZAC Memorial in Sydney that will be broadcast live. For more information about this televised service, visit www.rslnsw.org.au
