Video: Merchant Navy Parade


Merchant Navy Day was celebrated at Anzac Park today with a service of commemeration and thanksgiving.

Families and friends gathered infront of the war memorial as seafarers paraded along Haven Rd and into the park, passing through a guard of honour formed by the TS Talisman Sea Cadets.

The service included prayers, readings, laying of memorial wreaths, a blessing and an ode to the fallen.
