Anzac Day 1935 Twentieth Anniversary Memorial Service

April 25th, Anzac Day is nearly upon us. 

I have been preparing my Anzac Day tribute  which I will post in the next few days, but I just had to share this first.

This was the Memorial Service held at Yeronga for the Twentieth  Anniversary of the Gallipoli landing.






 





As can be seen from this page there was community involvement with various Scout and Guide groups and also the Premier of Queensland.

My Great-Great-Grandfather George Howard Busby, my Gallipoli veteran was a member of the 15/26 Battalion, the Guard of Honour for this Memorial Service.

We can only imagine the thoughts going through the Returned Soldiers minds during this day.
