    beat of drums by Doug Simpson and his youngest daughter, Anabelle. New to proceedings too was our local Senior Constable, Aaron Mathews as a flagbearer, alongside Walpole Sub Branch RSL member, Alan Barrington.

    President of the Walpole Sub Branch RSL, Kevin Pierce, welcomed the large crowd gathered and spoke of the significance of the ANZAC and Gallipoli campaign, the profound impact it had and the powerful legacy it left us.

    Wreaths and floral tributes were laid by Melva Lumb (Walpole Sub Branch RSL and on behalf of family members), Dave Tapley (Shire of Manjimup), Cheree Kirkwood and Denise Hunter (Walpole P and C),
