For the first time ever the Banner of USS Houston traveled from the USA to Australia and was marched through the streets of Melbourne alongside that of HMAS Perth, in the traditional (yearly) ANZAC Day parade.

Now while I wasnt at the service in Melbourne, I was at our local 'dawn service' at Currumbin Beach, Queensland (Australia) and here are a few photos from that service. Sequence is from circa 5am to 6.15am.

LEST WE FORGET

Nice photos Kevin. I attended a Dawn Service at Coolangatta about 20 years ago. Similar location and very moving seeing the sun come at over the sea during the ceremony. Glad to hear the HOUSTON banner was in Melbourne. Hope we can get one for Sydney next year.
