Australians working in Antarctica have held the southern-most Anzac Day dawn service, at temperatures of -15 degrees Celsius.

A team of 26 expeditioners who are spending the winter at the Casey research station gathered at the station’s flag-pole just before dawn.

They lowered the Australian flag to half-mast, listened to several readings and held the traditional two minutes of silence.
