Anzac Day 25th April 2021

March and Get-together.


The Anzac Day march in Melbourne will be advertised in the newspapers.

On the current information from RSLV it looks like all banners will be grouped together with no one marching behind them. There is a ballot for others to march and if you want to march somewhere behind the veterans who march this may be possible. You must register on www.rslv.gov.au and they will let you know if your application has been successful.

We will not be having a get together this year at the Mail Exchange Hotel after the march as the venue wanted EXACT numbers and we found that we could not provide this to them.

I am sure that we all hope for a resumption of normal commemorations in 2022.
