We attended the dawn service this morning at Memorial Park to commemorate those who have fallen and those who have fought for this great country.

ANZAC Day is a public holiday across Australia and New Zealand and next year will be the 100th anniversary.

The ceremony is hosted by the RSL and included an address from the President followed by the laying of wreaths, the Last Post, one minute silence, the Reveille and the national anthem.

At 11:30am the ANZAC parade made its way down the main street lined with people out to celebrate the ‘Diggers”. Those marching with the Diggers included members of various local service clubs, students, and the 10th Light Horse Brigade.

The parade led to Memorial Park for another ceremony which was well patronised by locals and visitors.

The Ode

“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.”

    I went to the dawn service in Melbourne one year and was incredibly moved by it. War is such a tragic waste of lives…all those young men who didn’t come home…lives ruined everywhere.
