Record Anzac march
A RECORD 6000 people are expected to line Coffs Harbour streets for today's Anzac march.
In readiness, the local RSL Branch has ordered double the number of Anzac Day badges it had last year.
Equally large crowds are expected to turn out right across the Coffs Coast in honour of our veterans and fallen servicemen and women.
In Coffs Harbour, the march will start from Beresford Park en-route to the Cenotaph. Local schools have also upped their participation numbers this year. Children from nine primary schools and six high schools will march alongside local veterans.
The record numbers are part of a growing trend around Australia to remember the sacrifices of those who fought for their country and those still in active duty.
Each year more relatives proudly wear their fathers', grandfathers' and even great-grandfathers' medals to honour their memories.
