ANZAC Day March – Melbourne
This year 2021, there will not be a Gunfire Breakfast, nor an ANZAC Day March in Melbourne as we know it.
Serving ADF Veterans will Parade March from a little way up Birdwood Ave and then into the Shrine Of Remembrance (SOR) grounds.
The RAAF will lead, as this is their Centenary year.
No non-serving Veterans will march, family members nor Foreign Veterans.
Some Banners will be located on a very small piece of the SOR Grounds.
Banners and Bearers will be organised by the RSL.
The service will be live-streamed, as will the Governor’s address.
Only the Governor and one Veteran will lay wreaths.
This year only 1500 Victorians will be permitted to attend and 1500 will be chosen via Ballot, (SOR will arrange this) and an area will be roped off for the lucky ones.
The after Parade Service will be conducted in the Sanctuary (again live-streamed).
The ANZAC Church service during Evensong, at St Paul’s, will go ahead on Sunday 18 April.
Numbers may be limited to 100, stand by, as this may change without a lot of notice.
