Distinctly Devonport


ANZAC DAY in New Zealand is held on 25 April each year to commemorate New Zealanders killed in war and to honour returned servicemen and women.

Poppy Day is held on the Friday before Anzac Day. The proceeds from the poppies go to the Royal New Zealand Returned and Services’ Association (RSA) to support returned servicemen and women and their dependents.

The red poppy – or Flanders poppy – is an international symbol of remembrance for those killed on the battlefield.
