5.40 am Westbury. Village green on the left. RSL hall on the right.
6 am The army cadets are doing duty as the catafalque party.
6 am The crowd in the street facing the war memorial
6.08 am. Douglas has the position on the right.
6.30 am Service is over. (And that’s taken towards the east.)
Back to sister’s house then, and bacon and eggs for breakfast.
10.25 in Launceston for parade and 11 am service. We missed the start (hopefully next time I say what times something starts, someone will believe me 🙂 and stopped at the first place we reached on the route.
Just half a block before the march ended. The cenotaph is on the other side of the TAFE building.
During a break in the march, the police cleared the crowd from the road and let some cars through.
As soon as the cars were stopped, the crowd returned.
Not really the best position to be taking photos from.
We found a place near the overpass, because it has no grass underfoot and being on the edge and amongst the speakers, it is less crowded, but still has a view of the speakers. The crowd didn’t seem particularly big. Maybe a little tighter packed then last year.
I went up to the front to get some photos but going up one side it was packed with sea cadets and other children in uniforms. To get back, I went out and out and out and around. There was a lot of crowed. Filling the adjoining street, and pack quite tight. A bit hard to get through.
Some of the crowd from where we were, and the speaker up the cenotaph.
In the other direction, filling Paterson St across to the other side of the overpass.
After this, I came home and had a nap 🙂
