Anzac Day 2020: Lighting up the dawn

Indian community veterans turn out for their own Driveway Dawn Service

Reading Time: < 1 minute

On Anzac Day we thank the brave men and women of our armed forces for their service, wherever they are serving, or have served in the past.
Every year, we at Indian Link salute you all in our own way, by telling your stories and reporting on your participation in Anzac Day marches in your own cities. 
This year, with COVID restrictions, we wanted to do the same, but differently of course.

As the call went out for a 6 am tribute in front of our homes or in our balconies, we asked our veterans to send us their pics from their morning salute – in honour of the Anzacs, Indian Anzacs (Jai Anzac Jawan), and all those who served and died in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations.
Lest we forget.
