Military horses will be up at dawn for Anzac service

THE 11th Light Horse Warwick Montrose Troop will mount up for the dawn service in Leslie Park tomorrow and later will lead the Anzac Parade from the RSL, with president Russell Brodrick saying the group considered it a great honour.

"It is our job to keep history going," Mr Brodrick said.

"It is appropriate for Anzac Day because the Light Horse also were at Gallipoli.

"They fought at the Nek and most lost their lives in the battle.

"Once they were out of Gallipoli they went into Palestine and moved on from there."

Mr Brodrick said Anzac Day was very real for many of the troop members.

"It means a lot, many of our grandfathers served in World War One," he said.

Warwick's dawn service will start at 5.30am tomorrow, followed by the parade from the Warwick RSL at 10.45am.
