Gunners’ Day only in Guildford

THE Anzac spirit will be honoured in Stirling Square in Guildford during two events in November.

The annual Gunners’ Day Parade will be held on Sunday, November 4 from 10am.

Gunners’ Day is only held in Guildford and was developed after the end of the Great War, with the first service being held in 1928.

The parade will be led by the Australian Army Band Perth, gunners past and present, serving officers and soldiers of 3rd Light Battery of the Royal Australian Artillery and members of the Australian Cadet Corps.

To mark the centenary of the end of the First World War, there will be a Remembrance Day Service at the War Memorial at Stirling Square on Sunday, November 11 at 10.30am.

Morning tea will be provided by the Country Women’s Association and there will be a Light Horse photo display in St Matthew’s Church Hall.
