BE PART OF PERTH’S BIGGEST ANZAC DAY PHOTO GALLERY
MANY thousands of people all across the State will take part in this year’s Anzac Day commemorations, with the logistical challenges being tackled by a committed contingent of passionate volunteers.
Returned Services League state president Graham Edwards said the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli landing was expected to attract thousands more people to commemorative services, not just at Kings Park but at suburban centres all over Perth.
Covering it all on the ground will be our local reporters and photographers, contributing to what could be Perth’s biggest Anzac Day online photo gallery at www.communitynews.com.au.
“Anzac Day 2015 will be a historic day for all Australians,” Community Newspaper Group Editor-in-Chief Matt Zis said.
“We hope that this gallery will help to honour our fallen and returned soldiers and provide a wonderful, permanent record of the commemorations for so many of the West Australians who attend a service during the day.”
Tackling the numbers, with free public transport, more screens and better sound systems, were volunteers who gave up their time to make sure the Anzacs were remembered.
Mr Edwards said the State Government had responded to lobbying to offer free public transport on the day and road closures in the city would be extensive to cater for the event and the more than 65,000 people expected to attend.
“I would encourage people to look at their local Anzac Day services because there will be hundreds across the state and there’s no doubt numbers will be big this year; 65,000 people are expected at Kings Park and more at places like Albany and other regional centres,” he said.
