The Hunters Hill community has come together to honour veterans and serving personnel ahead of Anzac Day.

Hunter’s Hill Council and the Hunters Hill RSL Sub-Branch jointly hosted the 99th Combined Anzac Memorial Service at Town Hall tonight (Friday 22 April).

The evening included a short service of remembrance and a march from the Hunters Hill RSL Memorial Hall, along Alexandra Street, to Town Hall for the full service and laying of wreaths.

The Sydney Thistle Highland Pipe Band and young performers Freya and Eleanor (on vocals) and Jacob (on trumpet), added musical elements.

The service was supported by the sub-units of the 8th Combat Service Support Battalion, local churches, the NSW SES Hunters Hill Unit, local Scouts and Ryde Police Area Command.

Lieutenant Gabrielle Hendry, a Transport Officer with the 8th Combat Service Support Battalion, gave the commemorative address.

She spoke of the connectedness of veterans who have served in the past and those who are currently serving and how the story and the history of Anzac continues to unify Australians.

Hunters Hill Mayor Zac Miles said the service was dedicated to those who currently served in all areas of defence and veterans of all wars.

“We who are gathered here remember with gratitude those who have served and are still serving in order to make the world a nobler place,” he said.

Hunters Hill RSL Sub-Branch President Major Damon Hietbrink said it was great to see so many people taking part in the march.
