Anyone attending Anzac Day services?

    Recommended Posts

    We recently returned from a few days in Melbourne with my grandsons. We took them to the Shrine of Remembrance.

     

     

    My oldest grandson goes to scouts and will be attending the local RSL service with my OH.

    That's a fairly comprehensive list - shouldn't be any reason to miss one wherever you are!

     

    Our eldest is taking part in the All Night Vigil at Morphett Vale Eternal Flame with Guides and our son is attending the McLaren Vale one with his Scouts. We'll go with him because it's just down the road rather than fight with the thousands that are predicted for the Morphett Vale one. There is a ceremony this evening at Morphett Vale to begin the Vigil so we''ll go along to that too.

     

    And just an aside - McLaren Vale Tourist Centre is showing the Water Diviner tomorrow evening (from 5pm, I think with the film at around 7) obviously because of the theme of the film but also I suspect because it was partly filmed down this way.

    I thought the all night camp was at Morphetteville Racecourse rather than Morphette Vale????

    There is a special camp at the Racecourse but the Vigil that she's attending is a Youth Vigil where various youth groups stand guard at the Memorial throughout the night until the Dawn Service.

    We plan on attending one but not sure which one we will go to tomorrow. One in Coromandel Valley, one in Blackwood and another in Clarendon. Will see in the morning.

    For sure.

    We do most years (I'm not going to lie, I did sleep in one year :frown:).

     

    It's a very somber service, remembering all those who gave so much, but really unites people.

     

    We go to the city. I think it's because when we first went, we felt a bit 'on the outside'? I like going up there though, love watching the light rising over the War Memorial.

     

    They reckon there will be a huge amount of people there this year - someone told me they'd heard ten thousand mentioned :shocked:!

     

    If my kids had been younger, we would've considered going to Camp Gallipoli at the Racecourse. It sounded like a wonderful thing to do; combining the mateship and togetherness Australians are renowned for, but for once, I'm glad they're too old as the weather is dire :sad:.

     

    As for the kids who keep the Vigil, well, :notworthy:. Awesome job.

     

    Lest we forget.

    What a good turn out. 2000+ would be my guess. Many young children. The birds quietened and the wind dropped for the Last Post.

    Lest we Forget.

    We were there too Doug. First time for us and i'm pleased to say even my kids rose early to join us. Very somber but a wonderful experience. My dad is a Vietnam vet and it felt good to be there for him (he's in the UK)
