Diggers saluted for service

WARWICK RSL Sub-branch member John Palmer was impressed with the number of children involved in yesterday’s Anzac Day Parade in Warwick which was attended by thousands.

Mr Palmer, guest speaker Colonel Michael Batiste and Southern Downs Regional Council mayor Ron Bellingham took the salute at the Warwick Town Hall as diggers, community organisation, bands and school groups marched to remember the 1.8 million Australians who have served in various conflicts.

“The numbers were quite good,” Mr Palmer said.

“The children are going to make sure Anzac Day carries on down the years.”

Two jeeps were organised by returned serviceman Eddie Marshall to transport some of the World War II diggers in the procession.

The resolutions were read by Scots PGC College captains David McMahon and Sallyanne Elder. Warwick RSL Sub-branch president Les Nielsen read the ode.

Anzac Day started early in Warwick with a crowd of 750 at the dawn service at the Warwick Cemetery. Miss Elder gave an outstanding speech on Anzac Day.
