The day in Wellington has dawned overcast and misty rain.

Here is an interesting link there are great photo's, letters home, video clips and facts commerating Anzac Day.

Just reading Stuff online (up to date news site); there is very sad breaking news this morning that Police confirmed three people are dead after an Air Force iroquois helicopter crashed into a farm north of Wellington.
Police confirmed that the Anzac Day crash happened about 6.45am. The wreckage was found on a farm, off Paekakariki Hill Rd and near Pukerua Bay, north of Wellington.
Four people were onboard. A Wellington Free Ambulance spokeswoman said three people were dead, and a fourth was taken to hospital in a serious to critical condition.
Few details were available but it's understood the chopper was one of three iroquois helicopters travelling to Wellington for Anzac Day celebrations.

What a terrible thing to happen.
