Bundaberg remembers the fallen

BUNDABERG’S veteran community has hailed yesterday’s Remembrance Day service as a resounding success.

About 200 veterans, servicemen and civilians gathered at the Bourbong Street Cenotaph to pay their respects to the nation’s fallen soldiers.

Bundaberg RSL sub-branch president Phil McNamara said he was pleasantly surprised by the number of youthful faces visible in the crowds.

“It was a particularly strong turnout and it was pleasing to see some younger people coming out to pay their respects,” he said.

“It’s an extremely important day for our veteran community and we’re appreciative of everyone who turned out in support.”

Mr McNamara gave a short presentation about the significance of Remembrance Day, after which bugler Robert McLucas sounded the Last Post.
