ON Sunday May 31st the United Nations hosted a memorial service honouring peacekeepers and peacemakers. Squadron Leader (Retired) John Burgess and Group Captain Lawson led the peacekeepers in a march along Adelaide St to ANZAC Square in Brisbane. With a good turn out of peacekeepers the day was a success. Representatives from various Government Departments as well as many other nations and Ex Service Organisations were also present.

After the service a morning tea was provided by the Womens Association. It was decided that this would become an annual event. Next year the service will be held on Saturday 29th May commencing at 10am. A luncheon following next years service will also be arranged.
