Anzac Day was commemorated at Bermagui with a main service that attracted over 200 people.
Following a march down Lamont St by veterans and school children the crowd gathered around the town’s war memorial to pay their respects to soldiers past and present.
During his address, Commodore Scott Lockey CSC RAN said those attending ceremonies around Australia came together not to celebrate or glorify war, but to remember the people who had fought and sacrificed for the country.
“Anzac Day is a day of great sadness and yet one of justifiable pride,” he said.
“Pride in the men and women who have displayed great courage, incredible discipline, and their self-sacrifice in choosing a life of service to their country, their family and their friends.”
After the service Bermagui RSL sub-branch president Neville Staehr said the day had been magnificent.
“The dawn service in particular seems to be getting bigger; I don’t know where they come from,” he said.
“It’s great to see the young ones participating.”
