Spilling out onto Glebe Point Rd, a larger crowd than usual gathered around the Diggers Memorial in Foley Park on Saturday morning to mark the centenary of Anzac Day. Rev Paul Perini, Minister of St John’s Bishopthorpe, led the service. Piper Rob McLean played The Lament, as a number of those present came forward to lay wreaths, including Deputy Lord Mayor Robyn Kemmis, Cr Linda Scott, and Glebe Society President Ted McKeown.

Max Solling, our resident historian, addressed the 200-strong crowd, with an empathetic description of the effect of the Gallipoli battle on the men, women and children of Glebe.
