  • Anzac Day in Albany

    Anyone heading to the Albany dawn service this year?

    So on the eight day, after wasting time faffing about with unimportant guff like heaven & earth & the waters & sky & creatures [& having a wee kip] & man.... God created PSB (GenesiSX-R1000)

            also ... The first and second ANZAC convoys (these convoys were made up of Aussie, Kiwi, Chinese and Japanese ships) left from Albany, Albany was an important coal and watering port before troops were deployed for training in Egypt and then on into battle against the Turks at Gallipoli.

              I don't actually have any plans for this years as yet. May be worth doing the drive/ride down and seeing my first anzac day down there.
              .

                  I'm planning on heading down that weekend too. The Albany service is nice. The brekky at dylans after is decent too.

                    Recall reading a plaque at the Shrine of Rememberence, it stated that the board walk there was to signify the troops boarding the ships from the wharf at Albany, for many, their last time on Australian territory.

                      Cottesloe Council have a few old photos of the ships in King George Sound and Princess Harbour in their offices. These arent them.

                        Not heading to Albany this year but I have marched there before. It is a good dawn service and march, especially when you take into account the history as per previous posts. Would recommend it from my experiences there

                          I could be tempted to ride down...I'll look at the plans others may have in store and go from there.
                          Thanks for planting the seed. :-)

                            Interested - not having been to a dawn service before plus the significance of Albany to the ANZACs

                              Possibly. I'll probably be in Albany then, but it depends on what my friends are doing.
