Thousands of people gathered in Perth this morning to honour service men and women past and present in the annual Anzac Day parade.

Young and old lined St George’s Terrace waving Australian flags and proudly displaying medals – their own or those of their relatives – applauding as the march passed them by.

A huge cross section of veterans from different communities contributed including Sikhs, Vietnamese, Greeks and many others honouring the contribution of brave soldiers, nursed, airmen and sailors.

At a commemorative ceremony at Perth Concert Hall, RSL WA president Peter Aspinall said Anzac Day was a time not only to commemorate but also to “count our blessings”.

“That we live in a freedom and that others fought and many died for those freedoms,” he said.

“I reflect on the turnout of thousands of people at the dawn service and the Anzac parade.

“In such reflections I am heartened and reminded that Anzac Day is about much more than veterans, it is about us as a community.

“It is all about all of us, our values and our freedom.”
