NEW DAY DAWNS: The dawn Anzac service at the Yamba cenotaph.

Emotions stirred at Yamba



UNDER sunny skies and with medals proudly displayed, Yamba's veterans honoured and remembered their fallen comrades in a moving Anzac Day march and ceremony yesterday.

They were not the only ones to honour the fallen, as more than 400 people attended both the dawn and commemoration services.

With pride evident on their faces, Yamba's veterans began the commemoration service with a march along Clarence Street, before their arrival at the cenotaph above Main Beach was greeted with applause from the large crowd.

The emotion of the event was touching, and as usual The Last Post, the ode and Reveille stirred the emotions of those present.
