Kwinana community rally for Anzac Day
The Kwinana community came out in droves to the Anzac Day commemorative services today to pay their respects to the military efforts of Australians and New Zealanders over the past century.
The dawn service at the War Memorial on Pace Road attracted about 1500 people, with similar numbers also attending the service at 10.45am.
The parade formed at Hoyle Road before making its way down Medina Avenue and finishing at the War Memorial on Pace Road.
It was led by servicemen and women and included representatives from various community groups.
The ceremony, presented by Kwinana RSL sub-branch president Dave Spillman, included a minute’s silence, the laying of the wreaths, Prelude to the Ode and the Last Post.
Music was a big feature of the morning with the Peter Carnley Anglican Community School choir performing Anzac Day hymns and the New Zealand and Australian national anthems.
