The speaker did it all without a script, people began to arrive a the Shrine from about 0400 hours and the turn out this year was the biggest ever. A gun fir breakfast after the service then a 0900 hours the parade with another service at the end. The number of younger people there was great to see as was the number at Gallipoli for the dawn service there. An annual event that sadly has less from WW2 and now none from WW1
Similar services were held across the nation in all towns. cities and eve the smallest of communities in the outback.
