This year we have had to learn to live with all kinds of restrictions, including ones which prevented us from holding traditional Anzac Day services in April, a tradition that our nation has proudly kept for over a century.
In light of this, I’m even more grateful to be able to mark Remembrance Day this week, with up to 100 attendees at allowed at services of remembrance across NSW.
At the Epping Cenotaph, John Curdie OAM and the Epping RSL Sub-Branch led the Epping community in commemorating those who made the supreme sacrifice and acknowledging those who still serve.
This year, we mark 102 years since the armistice of the Great War, and we think of those who have fought, in all wars, for the democracy and freedom we enjoy and often take for granted in this country.
I express my deepest thanks to John and the Epping RSL Sub-Branch for hosting this year’s Remembrance Day Service. Lest we forget.
