Katoomba to Springwood Friday 6th November 2015

The marchers left Katoomba RSL Club about 7 am.

A commemorative service was held at Lone Pine Park Memorial Gates in Lone Pine Avenue at Leura at 8.30 am.  Helen Thompson talked about Harold Brooks Davis, who joined the Coo-ees in the Blue Mountains, and who is remembered on this memorial, who she believes to have been the youngest of the Coo-ees to enlist, being only 16 years of age when he died in 1917.
