Anzac commemoration at the Canberra Hospital
On Wednesday April 17, at the Canberra Hospital, the Veteran’s Support Group conducted the annual Tribute to Veteran and Peacekeepers memorial service.
This was the fifteenth such gathering of veterans who include many former military and peacekeeping patients and support groups like the Vietnam veterans and the increasing number of Iraq and Afghanistan returned men and women.
Rev Deacon Mick O’Donnell, the RSL Chaplain delivered the prayer and the benediction and the ANZAC address was delivered by Colonel Andrew Meacham CSC who acknowledged the Diplomats from the French Embassy in attendance at the loss of the national icon Notre Dame Cathedral.
The Navy Catafalque party was provided by HMAS Harman.
Wreaths were laid representing many military organisations and a men’s choir, and a Scottish piper provided the music.
