The Centenary of Anzac, 2014 - 2018 remembers not only the original Anzac’s who served at Gallipoli and the Western Front, but commemorate more than a century of service by Australian servicemen and women. It encompasses all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations in which Australians have been involved. It is an opportunity to honour the service and sacrifice of all those who have worn the nation’s uniform.
Let us acknowledge those of Lithuanian decent who have contributed to Australia’s military history. People of Lithuanian heritage have fought for Australia in all major wars, some enlisted some were conscripted. Some have risen high up the ranks in the Navy and Army, all have made a mark on Lithuanian heritage in Australia and Australia’s history.
Over the next four years as Australia remembers, I hope to gather information on the Lithuanian Anzacs. I would welcome any information relating to their service, living or deceased. I plan to contact as many living Lithuanian Anzacs as possible for information. Where possible the information gathered will be made available. I currently have 124 men and women, spanning from WWI to present day, who constitute being an Lithuanian Anzac.
Please contact me with information.
