Martin Cameron – MP to honour ANZACs in Gallipoli

Tuesday 16 April 2024


The Nationals Member for Morwell, Martin Cameron, will travel to Türkiye tomorrow to follow in the footsteps of the ANZACs, culminating in the Dawn Service at Gallipoli.


Mr Cameron is joining a delegation of Victorian Parliament MPs on the trip and will lay a wreath on behalf of the Latrobe Valley. He will also visit the graves of fallen men from the local area.


“I am honoured to have the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of the brave men and women who served our country at Gallipoli and in the former Ottoman Empire,” Mr Cameron said.


“It is important that we never forget their sacrifice and service to our great country.”


“It is a great privilege to represent the people of the Latrobe Valley during the dawn service and lay a wreath on their behalf.”


“I will also be visiting some of the graves of local soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice and are laid to rest on the Gallipoli peninsula.”


“The Gallipoli campaign was a bloody and brutal campaign, and the beginning of our distinct Australian identity.”


“Many of the men who perished were young and naive, unaware of the harsh conditions and terrible toll that war has, viewing it as more of an adventure.”


“Even still, they fought proudly for Australia and all that represents; a fair, free, and prosperous future for those willing to have a go.”


“Many paid the ultimate sacrifice for our future, and many more were wounded for life.”


“With an uncertain future, we would do well to remember their legacy, and their sacrifice, so that we may enjoy the freedoms we do today.”


“Lest we forget.”
