Health service manager and director of nursing at Kellerberrin Memorial Hospital, Theresa Beech said the service was organised by hospital staff and members of the Local Health Advisory Group.

‘The aptly named Memorial Hospital would not be here today if it were not for the generous funding of the Returned and Services League,’ Ms Beech said.

‘The dawn vigil is a very emotional service where we remember with gratitude the men and women who have served and continue to serve in our armed forces.

‘We also remember those who have lost their lives and the loved ones left behind to bear the sorrow of that loss.’

Kellerberrin nurses Debra Ware, whose great grandfather served with the 10th Light Horse during World War I, and Jenny Bonser, whose grandfather served in World War I with the 51st Infantry Battalion, provided readings during the service.
