Service set at dawn in Mablethorpe to mark Anzac Day


The Mablethorpe and District Branch of the Royal British Legion invites everyone to join them at a dawn service to commemorate the 101st anniversary of the Gallipoli Landings on Monday, April 25.

The service will start bright and early at 5.25am at Mablethorpe War Memorial. The British Legion ask that you be at the memorial by 5.20am.

On the day of the Gallipoli Landings, thousands of young men, far from their homes, stormed the beaches on the Gallipoli Peninsula in what is now Turkey.

Then for eight months, allied troops from all over the world (including the 6th Battalion, The Lincolnshire Regiment) battled harsh conditions and with the Ottoman forces desperately fighting to protect their homeland.

Following the service a piper will lead the way to Dave’s Restaurant on the High Steert where tea or coffee and breakfast will be available (charges apply).
