NZ military to mark ANZAC Day in Pacific

1:31 pm on 24 April 2013

New Zealand military personnel will be involved in several ANZAC Day services around the Pacific tomorrow.

The main commemoration will be the 70th anniversary of New Zealand's involvement in the Second World War in New Caledonia.

84 veterans of the conflict are attending the service in Noumea and a subsequent visit to the Bourail Commonwealth War Graves Cemetery.

Services in Tonga and Solomon Islands will also be attended by senior New Zealand Defence Force officers.
