On April 25, 1916, approximately 2,000 Australian and New Zealand servicemen marched through London to commemorate the first anniversary of the Gallipoli landing, followed by a service at Westminster Abbey, beginning the now-annual Anzac Day commemorations in London.
The anniversary was marked on Tuesday with three services over nine hours. The day began with a dawn service at Hyde Park Corner, attended by approximately 3,000 Australians and New Zealanders, descendants of veterans, and British service people.
That was followed by the wreath laying service at the Cenotaph in Whitehall, with the road closed off for the ceremony. It then moved to Westminster Abbey where that first service took place 90 years ago.
Wreaths were laid at the Cenotaph by Australian High Commissioner, Richard Alston, former defence minister Robert Hill, and New Zealand Foreign Minister Winston Peters.
