TUESDAY, April 25 marks the 102nd anniversary of the Anzac landing at Gallipoli, and 100 years since 1917, one of the darkest years for Aussie troops.

Honouring the Anzac has long been a traditional custom on the Tweed and Dr John Griffin, secretary of the Tweed Heads and Coolangatta RSL Sub-Branch, said big crowds were once again expected to congregate this year.

"More and more Australians gather to mark Anzac Day, ensuring our diggers continue to be honoured and never forgotten,” Dr Griffin said.
