Redfern RSL Commemoration of ANZAC

It was extraordinary how the rain just stopped this Sunday morning just as The Redfern RSL Commemoration of ANZAC ceremony was about to commence at Redfern Park.

The printed order of service contained on the front page contained a reminder to all those blessed to be living in a free society, a quote from 1817 by US President Thomas Jefferson; "The Price of Liberty is 'Eternal Vigilance".

Chaplain Stephen Estherby RAN lead the prayer service and the very moving ANZAC Address was given by Michael Wilkinson, the Sub Branch Vice President. Attended by our veterans and the family of veterans and the fallen, Cr John Mant representing Sydney City Council, as always I felt privileged to stand with the men and women who gave us our nation .. our freedom .. to  honour the memory of those who paid the ultimate price in the name of freedom. Lest we forget.
