Defence Force Chief, Air Marshal Kevin Short on Anzac Day commemorations around NZ and the world

Dawn services have been held around the country this morning. On ANZAC Day, thousands of soldiers who fought for New Zealand in the great World Wars are remembered. 

Winston Peters and the Kiwi Defence Force contingent are at the Gallipoli Dawn Service. The Defence Force had a rocky start to the visit, with lost bags amid the chaos of Dubai’s floods meaning they will now play a reduced role in the service. 

Defence Force Chief, Air Marshal Kevin Short tells Roman Travers thousands were in Wellington this morning making for a very moving dawn service.  

The Defence Force has assisted RSAs throughout New Zealand to put on commemorative services in small towns and cities.  

Short says the government can always do a bit more to support veterans, even while acknowledging dollar-based limits.
