At 0400 hours on April 25, 1915 Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) landed on the beaches of Gallipoli – signifying their first major battle of World War 1.
Each year since and some 104 years on, the Anzac spirit remains strong. Today Anzac Day now also serves to honour the Australians who lost their lives in the Second World War and in all other military and peacekeeping operations through which Australia has been involved.
In keeping with the Anzac tradition, Agri Labour Australia’s Agri Veterans Ambassador, Peter Thatcher is currently doing the Kokoda Trail for the eighth time! A Defence member himself for over 40 years, Peter is leading a team of forty people which will finish on Anzac Day with a service at the Bomana War Cemetery.
Lending support at a more local level, you can find the Agri Labour Australia team volunteering at the RSL’s Anzac Day stand at Brookside Shopping Centre. With all proceeds going to assist returned servicemen and women and their families, this is a great cause that our Agri Veterans Program is proud to be associated with.
‘From Deployment to Employment’ our Agri Veterans Program bridges the gap to help ex-servicemen and women find stable and rewarding employment aligned to their existing skills and experience. Led by our highly experienced recruiter and former soldier Tim Chapman, Agri Veterans is a unique and award winning program that has successfully placed ex-servicepeople in a variety of agriculture roles all over the country.
From grain handlers to farm managers, the Agri Veterans team are always available to discuss role availability and job placements. Get in touch with us today on 1300 247 823.
