A Day of Remembrance

Monday marked the 107th ANZAC Day, a remembrance day to honour the anniversary of the landing of New Zealand and Australian troops at Gallipoli.

Following the ANZAC dawn parade at the cenotaph in Avarua (Ministry of Justice), people made their way to the Cook Islands Return Services (RSA), visiting the memorial gateway to the Cook Islands Return Services (RSA) cemetery, carved by Mike Tavioni and Michel Tuffery in 2017.

RSA members gathered to reminisce, remember and honour their fallen servicemen.

Guests were invited to join the RSA committee and members to a light “gun fire breakfast”, some searched for the headstones of long lost family members, and others just wanted to be present in respect to their grandfathers and great-grandfathers who had lost their lives in conflict.  22042507.
