This year the service, arranged by The Gallipoli Association, had wreaths laid by a representative of her Majesty’s Government, senior representatives of the Royal Navy and the Army and high-ranking officials from Australia, New Zealand, France, the Irish Republic and Turkey.
The Gallipoli Memorial was erected by the Gallipoli Association and unveiled on 28th November 1995 by the Association’s Past Patron, HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. It commemorates all those who took part in the Campaign. It was subsequently decided that there should be an annual Wreath Laying Ceremony at the Memorial on 25th April, the anniversary of the landings. This has taken place for the past 27 years.
