Mt Victoria to Katoomba Thursday 5th November 2015

The marchers left Browntown Oval at 7 am, in light rain.

Due to the rain, the commemorative service that had been planned to be held at Blackheath War Memorial was moved to Blackheath-Mt. Victoria RSL Sub-Branch Hall.  The service started at 8.30 am.

Morning tea was provided after the service by the ladies at Blackheath Quota Club.  The marchers left at 9.30 am, being waved goodbye by local school children.
