ANZAC Day Upload

ANZAC Day Upload

As part of Iona’s ANZAC Day Ceremony, families are invited to provide a photograph of their son with a relative or relatives who represented their country in armed conflict. This includes operations such as World War I, World War II, the Korean War, Vietnamese War and modern peacekeeping operations. This extends to those who have served in any role, such as soldiers, nurses, pilots and medics.

Please note that images will be collated and displayed publicly at the Iona ANZAC Day Ceremony. Some may also be displayed on other Iona media such as the newsletter or website.

Depending on time constraints and the level of interest, not all images may be used. Please try to ensure that you upload images as early as possible.

Staff are also encouraged to contribute.

 

Guidelines for images:

  • Having the student in Iona uniform is preferred;
  • If your son has a relative who served in a foreign armed services, you are still welcome and encouraged to upload a relevant image;
  • .jpg images are preferred;
  • Where possible, please check the quality of the image by viewing it on a computer prior to your upload.

 

If the relative is deceased but you would like your son to participate, you might consider:

  • Photographing your son in Iona uniform holding an image of his relative
  • Photographing your son in Iona uniform wearing his relative’s medals*
  • Photographing your son in Iona uniform with the spouse of a relative who served

The Australian War Memorial website asks that, “If wearing someone else’s medals they should be positioned on the right-hand side [of the chest].” For more information.
