Memorial Ribbons, ANZAC Day

By Marg Powell, Specialist Library Technician, Metadata Services | 20 April 2016

Today we purchase memorial ribbons to support and bring awareness to advocacy and charity groups. In 1916 and for all the years since, Anzac Day ribbons or 'badges' were worn for Remembrance.

After the evacuation of Gallipoli, battalions were regrouped, and many sent to France to fight the German armies. Those that remained in Egypt participated in commemorative activities to remember their fallen comrades.
