100 years of ANZAC was commemorated at Freedom Park in Tshwane, South Africa to pay respect to and to remember those who died in the Dardanelles campaign of World War I.

The dawn service began with a lament from the bagpipes. A requiem was performed by Mr Richard Mann, High Commissioner of New Zealand to South Africa. Mr Adam McCarthy, High Commissioner designate of Australia addressed the audience and Mr Kerem Yilmaz, Deputy Ambassador of Turkey delivered a reading of the words of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk.

Mr Ben Playle, Deputy High Commissioner of Australia recited the poem 'In Flanders Field' by Lt-Col John Macrae (1915).

A wreath laying ceremony was accompanied by music from the University of Pretoria Wind Band, while the children of the Australian High Commission recited 'Ode of Remembrance'.
