Reveille

Dear members,

As we all prepare to rise early tomorrow for what will be a very different ANZAC Day, I hope the memories and spirit of our fallen comrades burn bright in the collective minds of all Australians. Tomorrow is a solemn day to pay respect to our service personnel past and present.

One way that you can do so in New South Wales is by tuning into the 10am commemorative service from the Anzac Memorial. This will be broadcast on ABC, Channel 7, Channel 9 or you can tune in via Facebook Live on the RSL NSW Facebook page.

While we can’t hold our traditional dawn services and marches, I encourage everyone to tune into this service as a way to pay respects and honour our ANZACs.

Please keep in mind, this is a closed service so no one from the general public or media will be able to attend. Please tune in from your homes.

 

Details

Where: Anzac Memorial, Hyde Park, Sydney NSW 2000 (closed to the public)

When: 10am ANZAC Day – Saturday, 25 April

Order of Service: Available HERE for you to follow on at home

 

Thank you for reading,

 

Jeff O’Brien

State Secretary & GM Member Services
