Aside from the crowd being smaller than pre-COVID times, the Cobargo Anzac Day service once again received dedicated and continued support from the younger generations.
Pupils from Cobargo, Quaama Public Schools and the Cobargo Scouts attended, with the special additions of the schools singing tributes on the day.
The vice-president of the RSL sub-branch, Warrant Officer Graham Churchill, said he found the continued civilian support from Cobargo "terrific".
"Having the school children and Scouts come along and be part of the ceremony I think is important both for for service people such as myself and ex-service people," Mr Churchill said.
"They're our next generation, they're the people that are going to be supporting the town, supporting the ex-service people."
Another aspect of the Cobargo's service was the catafalque party provided by the Australian Defence Force which has been happening over the last handful of years.
Sub-branch president Glen Morrison said he was pleased to see the turnout on the day and that it gave great encouragement.
"I think you'll find that this is probably the first major event that is happening in Cobargo [since the bushfires and COVID]," Mr Morrison said.
The service paid its respects to New Zealand community members in the area, with Kataya McCormack singing the country's national anthem in Maori.
Secretary of the Cobargo RSL sub-branch Malcolm Elmslie also made a speech of thanks towards French village Villers-Bretonneux.
Mr Elmslie said the town had developed a deep connection with the French town since its fundraising campaign to assist Cobargo in bushfire recovery.
He hoped that one day without COVID restrictions they could receive the mayor and students from the French school and offer them the warm welcome and appreciation felt by the town.
"It is still our hope that one day, such a visit will be possible."
Local woman Sonia Evans sang the first hymn and other songs of tribute on the day also.
Children from Cobargo public school, Quaama public school and the Cobargo Scouts came up to make speeches of tribute.
