ANZAC Day in Yass, NSW.

Every ANZAC Day I try to visit a regional town to photograph the ANZAC Day March and commemorative service. This year I went to Yass, which is a little under and hour from Canberra. What I especially love about ANZAC Day is the gathering of people; the crowds who come together to pause and reflect on the sacrifice given by many thousands of soldiers who have served under the Australian flag in conflicts all over the world.

ANZAC Day is really the only day in this country's calendar when the streets of small towns like Yass become full, with people lining the footpaths to honour those marching who have served, as well as the memory of those whose medals are worn by younger generations marching in their absence.
