New Zealand – Remembrance ANZAC

For the people of New Zealand, 25 April will always be a day of remembrance. Designated as ‘Anzac Day’ in 1916, it’s an opportunity to remember a wartime event of extraordinary bravery and, ultimately, sacrifice: the World War I Gallipoli campaign, in which 2,721 New Zealand soldiers died.

‘Remembrance’ is the theme of this, the third stamp release in New Zealand Post’s ANZAC Series. It’s a reminder to all to honour the courage, tenacity and loyalty of those who have fought for freedom on the other side of the world.
