We re­mem­ber them

The Riverine Herald - - YEAR IN REVIEW 2018 -

MORE than 1000 peo­ple at­tended Re­mem­brance Day Cen­te­nary ser­vices in Echuca and Moama, in­clud­ing Bob Baker (pic­tured) at Moama. An event to crown four years of cen­ten­nial oc­ca­sions, in­clud­ing An­zac Day in 2015, it was its usual un­der­stated self. With 500 peo­ple at ser­vices both sides of the river the em­pha­sis was on recog­nis­ing not just the sol­diers from World War I but the evo­lu­tion of Re­mem­brance Day as an oc­ca­sion to com­mem­o­rate all Aus­tralian ser­vice­men and women who have been in­volved in wars, con­flicts and peace-keep­ing mis­sions.
