This service occurs each year to honour Australian-Russians who served in the First World War. More than 1000 men born in Russia or born to Russian parents in Australia joined the 1st Australian Imperial Force. More than 300 would die, and many more would be wounded. This service also honours the service and sacrifice of our Russian allies during the First World War.
