Dear Members,

The APPVA will be marching in Geelong, Victoria on ANZAC Day this year. We have a large number of new Young Veterans and Peacekeeping Veterans in our region that have returned from a large range of Operations. Many from the Solomons and Timor Leste. We also have our members and it would be appreciated if you could pass this onto as many veterans as possible.

Form Up Place: 150 Malop Street, Geelong (Opposite Office Works).

Timings:

0415 – Pre-Dawn Service – Johnstone Park.

0445 – Gun Fire Breakfast at Geelong RSL Sub-Branch Gold Coin donation. (50 Barwon Heads Road, Belmont).
