Numbers up for dawn service in London

21:07 Wed Apr 25 2012

Thousands of New Zealanders and Australians have come together to pay their respects at an Anzac Day dawn service on a cold, overcast morning in London.

The Duke of Gloucester and Duke of Kent were in attendance with the thermometer hovering in single figures, with rain holding off until after the ceremony.

Numbers were up on last year with Australia's Energy Minister Martin Ferguson laying a wreath at the New Zealand Memorial on Hyde Park Corner.

"It is a day for honouring not only those that fought and fell at Gallipoli but all Australians and New Zealanders that have served their country," Australian High Commissioner John Dauth said.

The dawn service is held on alternating years at each country's memorial, located diagonally opposite each other.

Anzac Day commemorations have taken place in London since 1916.
