Sydney honors Anzac marchers

Anzac marcher Sydney

Like in Holland, the Australian people has not forgotten their threw heroes, the ones that fought in Wars, to keep World Peace. In Holland we remember and celebrate them on the 5th of may in Australia on the 25th of April. There are cheers and a few tears as the as the diggers marched pass in close formation. People cheer them on with themes like Good on Ya, True Blue” and “Thank-you boys”. The oldest and most frail of the veterans, men in their late 80s and 90s, are carried ahead of the marchers in taxis, including a 1936 Plymouth sedan, which RSL Taxis brings out once a year for the purpose. Other elderly veterans are invited to ride in their formation commanders’ Land Rovers at the head of their contingent, including three New Guinean men who fought on the Kokoda Train.
