Reserve Forces Day – Melbourne

Reserve Forces Day held at The Shrine of Remembrance Melbourne Sunday 7 July 2019

The morning was a very pleasant when we gathered under the Flags at the Shrine, just prior to 10am. Around 50 present, formed lines 3 deep on the Forecourt to waited for the ceremonial Fly past, North to South and then East to West.This was followed by the main service. The Guest Speaker , laying of Wreaths and Prayers by our Chaplain Rusty Adams followed by the Last Post and Rouse and National Anthem.  At the conclusion, participants marched down the forecourt with a left wheel to come back up past the Eternal flame and eyes right. They all gathered on the steps of the Shrine for a Group Photo . Once again the Salvation Army looked after us very well with lots of Refreshments  The day overall was excellent.
