After a change of plans, I attended the Wollongong March. Zac, our army cadet son, was marching in it, after participating in a guard party at the Port Kembla dawn service. Which by all reports was cold and windy. But we don't have the right to complain about the weather today. Did the ANZACs get the chance to complain about the weather? Or any soldiers in any war? No, they just had to get on with it.
I have a new phone that I used to take photos & they don't all end up the same size when I download them to my computer. Haven't yet mastered how to change that! But here are some to share with you.

Lots of groups marching:

The march wasn't as big this year, however I am proud to see so many of our youth marching as a sign of respect for our fallen soldiers and our veterans. Whether as members of cadets, brigades, scouts or kids marching with Grandparents, they did themselves proud. Good to see such respect being shown.
Lest We Forget.
