THEY turned out in their thousands across the Southern Downs and Granite Belt to attend Anzac Day services yesterday, in a strong sign that a resurgence in respect for the Anzac tradition continues to grow year by year.

As dawn broke over Warwick and Stanthorpe, locals stood loyally in the fog to hear the notes of the Last Post sounded by bugle and the words of The Ode recited, with later morning services in both towns drawing bumper numbers.

School children were foremost among those who marched to commemorate the 97th anniversary of the Gallipoli landings, along with those lost in other past conflicts and those serving their country now.
