Penrith to Blacktown Sunday 8th November 2015
The marchers left Penrith Paceway a bit after 7 am after being provided with muffins, croissants and coffee for breakfast which was very much appreciated.
They arrived at Victoria Park in St Marys at 9 am, lead by a piper, for a commemorative service at St Marys War Memorial.
The marchers then enjoyed bacon, eggs and sausages cooked by the Rotary Club of St Marys, at the same park the Coo-ees were provided with breakfast in 1915.
The marchers were soon on their way down the Great Western Highway following in the footsteps of the 1915 Coo-ees, to the Mt Druitt Waterholes Remembrance Garden, for a commemorative service in the new Anzac Centenary Walk where a Coo-ee March plinth was unveiled on 22nd April this year, and near the Mount Druitt and Colyton Roll of Honour. This spot was very near where the Coo-ees stopped at Colyton in 1915.
The marchers arrived at Blacktown Showground to prepare for their overnight stay about 2.30 pm.
At 6 pm the marchers met with the Blacktown RSL Sub-Branch for a service at Blacktown RSL Club. The marchers then enjoyed a buffet dinner as guests of the Blacktown RSL Sub-Branch. The marchers and support crew then had a get together and had a few speeches, before leaving the club about 9 pm.
