Anzac Day is the solemn day of remembrance of those Australian and New Zealand Army Corps soldiers who have fought and died for their country, and is marked annually on the anniversary of the Gallipoli campaign of the First World War.
We will travel down to Gothenburg to meet up with the New Zealanders and Australians to join them in remembrance and celebration of this day.
The Association of British and Commonwealth Servicemen and Women in Sweden with the support of the Australian, New Zealand and British Embassies in Sweden take pleasure in hosting an ANZAC Day function on 25 April 2019 starting at 1800 at the Oxen Restaurant, Malmskillnadsgatan 46. The event will include the traditional ‘Ode to the Fallen’ and minutes silence followed by a screening of Peter Jackson’s widely acclaimed ‘They Shall Not Grow Old’.
The Association’s Annual General Meeting will be held on ‘sometime in January 2020’ at the usual place with entrance times between
1800 and the start of the meeting at 1830.
Light refreshments will be provided.
If the membership fee is not paid prior to the date of the AGM, membership shall be considered to have elapsed and attendance at the AGM will not be permitted.
The AGM is the forum for deep debate and discussions within the Association.
You are therefore encouraged to come with proposals and suggestions for events which the Association could hold throughout the year. We may not be able to accommodate them all but please don’t be shy about submitting your thoughts and ideas.
It would be interesting for the Committee to get feed-back from the membership regarding the Association as a whole so this is the time for praise and complaints to be brought out.
This is your Association and the Committee is the caretaker but you are the owners so come and make your voice heard!
