Commemorating Anzac Day

The Brunei-Australia Memorial at Muara Beach was yesterday the focal point for more than 180 Bruneians, Australians, New Zealanders and international guests who were commemorating Anzac Day. The event commemorates the Australian and New Zealand men and women who have served in their nations armed forces.

In her address, Her Excellency Nicola Rosenblum, the High Commissioner of Australia to Brunei Darussalam said Anzac Day is not a commemoration of the victories or defeats of Australia or New Zealand at war. Rather it is to honour the ordinary men and women who have made personal sacrifices, many giving their lives for the freedoms enjoyed by the people of today. The Brunei-Australia Memorial marks the site where on 10 June 1945, Allied forces led by Australia's 9th Division landed in Brunei as part of the campaign to liberate Borneo.
