More Information

The Commemoration will be preceded by a Commemorative Procession from the Archibald Fountain to the Anzac Memorial celebrating the bond between Australia and France in The Great War.

The Procession re-enacts the final march of the veterans of the 5th Division on the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Fromelles (19 July 1966) to the Anzac Memorial to request that the Trustees of the Anzac Memorial always remember their service and the sacrifice of their comrades on 19 July 1916.

Descendants, representatives of ex-service organisations and interested people are invited to joint dignitaries and high ranking military and civilian officers.
