Seen In … ANZAC Day Fremantle

At 5.50 am sharp this morning the Anzac Day service at Monument Hill, Fremantle, at the Freo War Memorial, snapped into action.

It was dark, but still enough, and rainless – unlike last year.

The crowd of service men and women, dignitaries, families, old and young, toddlers and babes in arms, was as silent as a Dockers crowd after a Derby loss.

The singer wowed the captive audience.

The bugler was unbelievable. The sound so poignant.

The speeches were crisp and on point.

And touching.

Then the dawn broke and the sunlight spilled over us all.

Lest we forget.
