Feel free to engage as much as you'd like. Sit back and absorb the diary readings, reflecting on the profound words, or participate actively by lending your own voice and reading from the diaries.

Voices of Gallipoli, penned by Maurice Shadbolt and adapted by Arthur Meek, is part of an international initiative to honor the lives of New Zealanders at war by giving voice to their words during Anzac Day commemorations and events. Join us in this meaningful tribute.
