On 16 March 250 people celebrated the arrival of the RSL Anzac Flame in Adelaide, and Launch of Camp Gallipoli 2016 in the Audi Club, Adelaide Oval. Guests enjoyed a special address from Ray Martin and watched two soldiers ride on Adelaide oval on horseback with the Anzac Flame and light the Camp Gallipoli.
The ANZAC Flame represents the spiritual return of our original ANZACs who made the ultimate sacrifice. The Flame was first ignited at a special ceremony in Albany WA, where most of the ANZACs departed, by Dan Keighran VC.
Camp Gallipoli is a sense of community as we come together to share in a common purpose and recognise the past sacrifices made for our freedoms today. Through a series of commemorative events, Camp Gallipoli aspires to instil the ANZAC ideals of mate-ship, courage, inclusiveness and self-sacrifice into the youth of Australia and New Zealand, in order to maintain our unique ANZAC Spirit for future generations.
