Remembrance Day ceremony held at Ettalong
A Remembrance Day ceremony was held at 11am on November 11 at the Ettalong Beach Memorial, commemorating 102 years since the end of Word War I.
The relaxation of coronavirus restrictions meant the National Service 1951-72 Re-enactment Unit and a catafalque party could join officials for the ceremony.
The ceremony was organised by the Vietnam Veterans Peacekeepers and Peacemakers Association of Australia.
Central Coast sub-branch president Mr Alan Ball welcomed and thanked those in attendance.
Lieutenant Colonel Retired Scott Tatnell was guest speaker, providing an insight into attitudes of the day.
The Ettalong Diggers Club hosted veterans and their families afterwards, their first social function for the year.
