100 Year Anniversary Film Screening and Public Forum

On 13 October 1915 the people of South Australia voted to rename celebrations for the 8 Hour Day 'Anzac Day' in honour of soldiers wounded in the First World War. The event included a procession through Adelaide and carnival at Adelaide Oval. Now in 2015 we remember that first Anzac Day.

Join RSL SA, The University of Adelaide and History SA for a forum and film screening reflecting on the 100 year anniversary of the first Anzac Day. Drill Hall, Torrens Training Depot, Victoria Dve., Adelaide South Australia. Free car parking from 5pm
