Does anyone have a photograph taken at the service last year of the cemetery itself looking to the right hand side? Preferably taken from the gallery.

Am also after a photograph of the headstone of the Unknown Soldier that waws buried the day of the service.

Hi Sandra

I have some taken during the service given to me by a friend so I cannot post them here. I also have one of the Unknown Soldier taken on the 20th but the flowers are very much the worse for wear.

If you PM me, we can work out how to get them to you.

Thanks Glen ... you might still need to talk to your friend. But will discuss that with you privately.

Thanks heaps :)

Thanks Leigh ... ideally I am wanting the 'afters'

Sweeping view on a right hand angle across the cemetery and one of the unknown soldier that was buried on the day of the ceremony.

Will contact you off the forum :)
