ANZAC Day Commemorat­ion at Richmond RSL Sub-Branch


Richmond RSL Sub-branch will commemorat­e ANZAC Day 2022 with a Dawn Service to be held at the Richmond War Memorial, Richmond Park, from 5.00am on Monday 25th April 2021. The Dawn Service will include the traditiona­l Catafalque Party, keynote addresses and the laying of veteran organisati­on and community wreaths.

Covered seating will be available for dignitarie­s, veterans and older family members, who should arrive no later than 4.40am. Local community members are most welcome to participat­e in the ceremony, ensuring that they follow current COVID restrictio­ns. The wearing of face masks is optional.

Richmond RSL Sub-branch welcomes the many veteran and community groups who, each year, participat­e in this commemorat­ion and who lay wreaths to honour our veterans. Richmond RSL Sub-branch will continue to invite local community families and individual­s to lay private wreaths in honour of family members who have served, or are serving.

For clarificat­ion, even though COVID restrictio­ns are being relaxed, Richmond RSL Sub-branch will not commemorat­e ANZAC Day, including the traditiona­l march from the RSL Sub-branch to the Richmond War Memorial, on the Sunday prior to ANZAC Day (24th April 2022).
