Lest We Forget.
Dawn Service at Toukley RSL with my Wife and Daughter. Very nice.

One little thing that ticked us off, and a few others standing around us was a senior Naval Officer who marched out in front of the Cenotaph representing the Navy was open mouthed chewing gum as he marched and did so the whole time he stood there throughout the Service.

Marched in the main service at Sawtell NSW, was a great day catching up with your mates, spinning some yarns and having a cold one.
