AN estimated crowd of 1500 people gathered in Wodonga's Woodland Grove yesterday morning to pay tribute to the Anzacs and all of those who had paid the supreme sacrifice while serving Australia in times of war.

Piper Doug McRae and drummer Milton Mann accompanied the catafalque party as it was mounted, before chaplain Father Ben Hall offered prayers for the fallen, for peace and for those who continued to suffer as a result of war.

The laying of wreaths by RSL sub-branch president Kevyn Williams and by Sgt Ellen Greig on behalf of the Australian Army was followed by the Ode, the Last Post and a benediction offered by Fr Hall as the service came to a close.

Meanwhile, across the border, another large crowd estimated at 2500 people gathered at the Albury Monument for the 5.30am service.

The age of those in attendance ranged from young to old on the 99th anniversary of Australian troops entering battle on the shores of Gallipoli in World War I.

The 25-minute service kicked off with bugler Mason Gregoy sounding “Stand To” before the catafalque party took up position at the base of the monument.

The catafalque party this year was made up of soldiers from 4/19 Prince of Wales’ Light Horse Regiment’s A squadron based in Albury.

RSL sub-branch chaplain Father Alan Kelb had the honour of delivering the call to remembrance followed by the Lord’s Prayer.
