Anzac Remembrance under the stars

IMG_0026 (Small)

‘Anzac Remembrance under the stars’ is a special Youth Week activity organised by the City of Canada Bay Library Service.

The event will be held at St Alban’s Church grounds, Five Dock on Friday, 17 April, 6-9.30pm. The evening will showcase a selection of videos produced by local students as part of the ‘More than just a name’ project, followed by the film War Horse.

It’s quite appropriate that the event should be at St Alban’s which has an honour roll listing the names of over 200 local men and women who served in the First World War. The honour roll has an ecumenical flavour. It included relatives of parishioners as well as their friends, so it lists people from other denominations, such as Methodists and even a member of the Plymouth Brethren.

The Reverend John Boardman of St Alban’s served as a Chaplain during the First World War. His son, Harold Boardman, served in the 18 Battalion.
