ANZAC Day March 2013 Print E-mail
Written by Professor David Flint AM   
Thursday, 25 April 2013

ANZAC Day is the day when Australians and New Zealanders remember those who died and fought for their country in the many wars in which we have been involved.

Across the two nations, marches and services are held to honour the call to our nations, Lest We Forget.

 

This video begins With the Last Post, followed by a reading of the Ode of Remembrance from Laurence Binyon's poem, "For the Fallen",

 

This begins this report  of the ANZAC Day march in Sydney, 2013. The streets were filled with people young and old, some having come from the Dawn Service which attracted many thousands.

 




...Her Excellency marches...

 

Once again led by Her Excellency the Governor, Professor Marie  Bashir – having just flown back from Canberra where she attended the dawn service for the national capital – the  three and half hour long march wound its way through the City of Sydney.

 

Her Excellency, attended by Her Aides-de-Camp from each of the services,, was preceded by a procession of cars and taxis carrying disabled veterans, As they do every year, the pipes and drums of the Scots College Sydney followed leading with the familiar old Australian tune, On the Road to Gundagai. And there was a glorious sight – 300 massed flags carried by various young people followed by the New South Wales mounted police. Founded in 1825 by Gov Brisbane, they are the oldest continuous mounted group in the world.

Her Excellency followed and then came the leaders of the New South Wales division of the Returned Services League, whose task it is to organise the annual march.

Once again this was a very moving occasion. Lest We Forget.
