RSL PFH District Members

As you are aware, ANZAC Day commemorative services this year have been cancelled due to the restrictions placed on us by the public health emergency caused by the coronavirus.
For many of us, ANZAC Day this year will be a very strange experience with, no Dawn Service, no gunfire breakfast, no Street March and Main Service, no public wreath laying, and no two up.
However, this does not mean that we cannot take the time to remember all those service men and women who never came home and all those who returned and have since passed on.
In response to this, RSL Queensland is running a “Light Up The Dawn” campaign in both the traditional and social media which encourages people to hold a private ANZAC Day service in their driveways, on their balconies, or in their backyards at 6am.
To complement this program, the District has been able to arrange the following:
A short radio commemorative service will run on 4RO in Rockhampton at 5.45am on ANZAC Day morning.
The service will include an introduction song, an address by me, the reciting of the Ode, the Playing of the Last Post, a moment’s silence, the playing of Reveille, and the National Anthem.
Deputy President, John Edwards, has been able to organise the following:
Just after 6am news and again at 10am a short service will be broadcast on 105.9FM
During the day, 101.1 Tropic North ABC will be playing a short memorial service in conjunction with addresses by Presidents/Executive members of Mackay District Sub- Branches.
I encourage you all to get into the ANZAC Spirit and “Light Up The Dawn”, tune in to these radio broadcasts if you are in radio range, and enjoy your ANZAC Day.
Yours sincerely
Barry Vains OAM
