The ANZAC Centenary (from 2014 to 2018)

The 100th anniversary of Anzac Day is being remembered with the completion of a replica of the origional Obi Obi honour board. The unveiling of the origional Obi Obi honour boar occurred  at the Obi Obi hall on the 04.10.1917.

This replica will be hung at the Obi Obi hall.

Anzac day marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by New Zealand and Australian forces during the First World War. On 25th of April 1915, the forces landed on Gallipoli, so this became the day on which the sacrifice of soldiers who had died in the war was remembered .
