New Zealand and Australian representatives will return to Gallipoli on Anzac Day this year.

The Covid-19 pandemic has stopped formal ANZAC commemorations in Turkey for the last two years.

Veterans’ Minister Meka Whaitiri will attend next month’s service.

She will also visit the Māori Contingent Pā site at Number 1 Outpost, as well as Shrapnel Valley, Beach Cemetery, and Twelve Tree Copse Cemetery where some of the fiercest fighting took place.

She said Anzac Day in Gallipoli is a significant part of the national day of remembrance and has been keenly missed by those who had expected to take part but could not.

All commemorations will be held within the Turkish Covid-19 guidance at the time and attendees will be encouraged to follow appropriate public health measures.
