Each year the Gisborne Fire Brigade has the honour and opportunity to march alongside veteran Diggers for the ANZAC service held at the War Memorial in Howey Reserve, Gisborne. A wreath was placed on behalf of the brigade by Fire-fighter Barrotta and 4th Lieutenant Radnedge, and was accepted by Gisborne Scouts on behalf of all who have served.
“As a brigade we are very privileged to have an invitation extended to us each year to march alongside our nations war heroes. This year was no exception with an impressive attendance by the local community to pay their respects to our past and present soldiers,” said Captain Sam Strang.
Gisborne brigade also supported the dawn service on Mount Macedon at the commemorative cross. Brigade members helped at the event in the morning, with a 4am start needed to help manage the large number of people who attend this iconic event.
