A Centenary of ANZAC

Last night we were fortunate enough to attend the Centenary of ANZAC ceremony at the King’s School. With a long military history, King’s lost 98 boys and 2 staff in World War I – this represented three generations of Kingsmen, out of a school that only had 220 boys in those days. The ceremony was beautiful, complemented by the King’s Marching Band and Cadet Corps. I can’t really describe the ceremony so here are some pictures to give you an idea (all photo credit to The King’s School, I had lots of people in front of me so couldn’t get good shots):
