FROM THE PRESIDENT
The day that was ANZAC Day, 2020
To all Commissionaires, I trust you all had a very memorable ANZAC Day.
In uniform, I managed to get to The Repat for a few quiet moments on my own, to lay a tribute at our Memorial Plaque.
I have included an email from The Corps, UK. Mike BULLOCK is the C E O of The Corps UK, and was one of our invited guests who would have joined us this year. Next year, hopefully, the representatives from the UK will be able to be here with us.

Whilst we can’t be there in person, our thoughts are with you as we remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
Keep well and keep safe.
From all your friends at The Corps (UK).
Lest we forget.
It definitely was different without the usual get together and catch ups with comrades and mates.
But it gave us an opportunity to spend the whole day with family and gave us time to reflect more than we normally would I’m sure. Not being able to move around from one Service and functions to another, gave us that special time.
I received a number emails from Commissionaires wishing The Corps and Committee a memorable day.
I was both proud and impressed at how many of our members went to great efforts to make this most unusual ANZAC Day still memorable.
I have included some of the pictures sent to me by Commissionaires. Some arranged Dawn Services for neighbours, others “dressed” their houses and there were some very innovative ideas to remember our Fallen and current and ex-service men and women.

On behalf of the Committee, I congratulate and thank you all for your efforts, and I am particularly proud of our Corps because so many of you still were in uniform for some part of the day.
