Patrons wishing to commemorate from home can also request a poppy be placed in the gallery of their choice through the award-winning voice application, Anzac Stories. Users can conduct a virtual service, play The Last Post, or listen to letters and diaries from past-and-present serving members of the armed forces. To start, simply ask Amazon Alexa to “Launch Anzac Stories” or Google Assistant to "Talk to Anzac Stories".
