Whatever we think of war, the bravery of those who serve will never be in dispute. They are the reason we commemorate ANZAC Day. The stories in this brochure are some small acknowledgement to a few local people who have served, though of course we can never mention them all. The greatest acknowledgment and thanks we can offer is to never forget.
As always I would like to thank the RSL sub-branches for their assistance with this brochure, and for their continued work for remembrance. This 100th Anniversary of the ANZAC landing gives us even greater cause to attend a service, and remember the sacrifices of those before us.
