Anzac service in Abu Dhabi

The Australian and New Zealand embassies are hosting a dawn service in Abu Dhabi on Anzac Day.

They will commemorate Australian and New Zealanders who have died in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping missions.

Defence Attaché Colonel Darryl Groves will lead the service from 5am on the Falcon Lawn at the Fairmont Bab Al Bahr Hotel, Abu Dhabi.

A spokeswoman for the Defence Attaché said the Australian, New Zealand and Turkish ambassadors would be among the 800 expected to attend.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the landing of the Anzacs alongside British, Canadian and Indian troops at Gallipoli in World War I.
