Anzac Day

Ninety-five years on, the original Anzacs, all now dead, would be pleased that the motto 'Lest we Forget' is still being honoured with such fervour.

After the Dawn Service, locals and tourists alike lined the streets of Huskisson for the Anzac Day march:



Followed by a short ceremony at Voyager Park, overlooking jervis Bay:

Lest We Forget.
