In New Zealand and Australia, Armistice Day has always been overshadowed by Anzac Day (25 April). First observed in 1916, Anzac Day has been a full public holiday in New Zealand since 1921. Armistice Day was nevertheless observed in New Zealand. Until the 1950s, trains would come to a halt and vehicles would pull over to the kerb just before 11am on 11 November. Drivers and passengers observed two minutes’ silence.
