Watching the ANZAC parade 2009 (Part 1)

This was my second watching the ANZACs as they marched through St. Kilda Road, to the Shrine of Remembrance. It’s a parade which represents a mix of emotions – solemnity, a remembrance of those fallen, an affirmation of those who came back.

We see the drummer boys and girls

children and grandchildren accompanying the marchers

and waving the flag

Of course, the March Marshalls have their hands full coordinating movements. Some have to actively point out where to stand

And someone else has to tick it off as done.

In the end, you get some incongruous combinations

Watch out for Part 2…
