The Yanchep Two Rocks sub-branch of the Returned Services League will hold a dawn service as well as a parade on April 25.

‘We’ll commemorate the landing of Australian and New Zealand troops at Gallipoli and pay our respects to those who served their country and gave their lives in the name of liberty,’ secretary Gladys Shave said.

‘In the post-Vietnam era, Australian forces have been involved in numerous peacekeeping and warlike operations and have recently fought as part of the multi-national forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.

‘This year, as well as welcoming the general public to share our services, we are also inviting any younger veterans to be recognised and acknowledged by leading our parade at Yanchep National Park.’

The dawn service will start at 5.45 at the Yanchep Sports Club, while the parade will start at 11am in the national park.

Continuing the tradition to support the veteran community, Mrs Shave said the sub-branch would start evening meetings to encourage new membership.

‘We’re making arrangements to meet once every three months in the evening to make our meetings accessible to those who would like to join us but are unable to make the day time meetings,’ she said.
