The Dawn Service at the Shrine of Remembrance will kick off this great day (6 am). Those of you who wish to join us for breakfast at the Jardin Tan (formerly the Observatory Cafe) which is located directly opposite the eastern steps of the Shrine, straight after the Service, are most welcome. The Dawn Service is a most emotionally rewarding experience that focuses ones self on why we as a society have the freedoms we enjoy today.

Refer to the RSL Victorian Branch Anzac Day page for further details.

After breakfast, 458 Squadron Victoria Flight will be forming up on the Federation Square side of Flinders Street, east of Swanston Street. Please look out for the 458 Squadron Banner. We will be there from about 9:15am if you would like to come early for a chat. Form up time is at 9:45am sharp and step off is 10:15am. This early formation is a request from the RSL.

After The March please join us for our Victoria Flight AGM and light lunch at the Jardin Tan Restaurant.
