Anzac Day 2019

Reports from the Day

Stay tuned as reports and photos come in for this year.

MELBOURNE, VICTORIA. 2019

 

On a magnificent Melbourne autumn day, 19 of us plus 5 Air Force Cadets (from Squadrons 403, 404, 405, 416 and 417) marched to the Shrine of Remembrance. The Spirit of Anzac remains alive and well, displayed by the number of people lining the march acknowledging our forebears for their service and sacrifice. This is deeply heartwarming. Another of the many highlights was having Barry Laming, grandson of 458 Veteran, Ernie Laming marching with us. 13 of us attended the Annual General Meeting (click on the link to read it). Read about Squadron Leader Chris Baker, the grandson of 458er Jack Baker, flying and training other pilots on the RAAF's top of the line Joint Striker Fighter F35 aircraft!

ABC TV covered the entire march. We appear at 2 hr 4 mins 52 sec at the abc iview Melbourne webpage link.
