Dayboro Brass Band – Anzac Day March 1926

The Daily Mail of 30th April 1926 reported “…Anzac Day was marked by a memorial service in the Presbyterian Church, conducted by the Rev. Mr. Murphy. The choir and the Dayboro Brass Band assisted. A procession consisting of returned soldiers, headed by the band, marched to the soldiers’ monument, where an impressive service was conducted, and wreaths of white flowers placed at the base.”
I wonder if the dog in the photograph accompanied the marchers all the way to the monument.
The soldiers’ monument in the grounds of Dayboro State School was unveiled on 13th November 1920. It bears the names of 49 men, 15 of whom paid the supreme sacrifice. It was relocated to its present site in Roderick A. Cruice Park and unveiled on 11th November 2011.
