Gallipoli Re-Enactment DVD Available

Posted on 27-Jul-2015

The Tweed Heads and Coolangatta RSL Sub-Branch have put together a DVD of the Centenary of ANZAC 2015 event which includes the Re-enactment of the Gallipoli Landing, Dawn Service and Main Service conducted at Tweed Heads on Saturday 25 April 2015.

The re-enactment used surf boats from the local surf life saving clubs, manned by club members and was timed to recreate the dawn effect of the real landing.

All uniforms and .303 weapons carried were accurate reproductions of those actually used at Gallipoli. The regimental colour patches on the infantry uniforms were those of the 9th Battalion who were among the first ashore. The engineers wore patches of the 1st Division.

The catafalque party, bugler and padre at the services wore the colour patches of the 2nd Battalion from the Hunter and Northern NSW areas which landed later in the day on the 25th.

These are available for purchase from early July from the RSL Sub-Branch Tuesdays to Fridays from 9am to 12noon.

DVD’s cost just $5 for members of the RSL Sub-Branch and Twin Towns Clubs and Resorts and $10 for non-members.

To order your copy please phone the RSL Sub-Branch on (07) 5599 0286, email admin@thc-rsl.org.au or pop in and see the staff at the office located at Twin Towns.
