Mr Lu­cas said he was hon­oured to speak at the ser­vice.

“How much does our past de­fine us and for how long? Our past does iden­tify us, the good, the bad and the ugly,” he said.

“We are here united by our past in hon­our and with grat­i­tude for all those who have served our coun­try in many ways.

“We are cit­i­zens of the South Bur­nett, free from the rav­ages of war.”

Brid­get said gen­er­a­tions needed to work to­gether.

“As youth we ask that you don’t leave us the fu­ture but lead us into the fu­ture,” she said.
