Mums, Dads, Diggers, Kids, and Memories

Anzac Day in Fremantle is always a little less precise  on  military precision but full of camaraderie. Poignant moments sometimes give way to gentle humour.

Here are a few photographs from yesterday’s Esplanade assembly point.

Finally a favourite from 2011. An old digger (sailor actually) was wheeled onto the parade ground but before he took his place in the parade he whipped out a hip flask and took a slug. The last picture was taken in 1977 in Perth. The parade was over and this old fellow walked over to what may have been his old regimental flags, took off his hat and stood silently, looking at them for a few minutes….
