ANZAC Service at Glenmore

22/04/2016

​Glenmore's ANZAC Service began with our P&C president, Gavin Pointing, proudly playing the bagpipes. 

Our special guest this year was Sapper Brad Bauer. He was a volunteer National Serviceman who served as a Field Engineer in 3 Troop, 1 Field Squadron of the Royal Australian Engineers of the Australian Army during the Vietnam War. During his tour of duty as a Field Engineer, he was one of the "Tunnel Rats" whose expertise in mines, booby traps and explosives took him through the highly dangerous tunnels of the Viet Cong.

 

The Service also included the reading the Prayer of Remembrance, playing of The Last Post and The Rouse, and singing of the Australian and New Zealand national anthems.

Representatives from each class then laid a wreath at the Alec Beesley Memorial. Alec, a past Glenmore student, was a wireless operator and air gunner who was killed during World War Two.
