HOME OF THE LADY DENMAN - Local history isn't always about the big story - the everyday story of life in the early development of the region can be a fascinating, entertaining and educational journey.

Anzac Day

April 25th 2017 Dawn Service at HMAS Creswell.
A large crowd slowly and quietly gathered before sunrise within the grounds of HMAS Creswell.  The sun was still below the horizon brushing the sky with the slightest hint of orange.  We stood on the historic soil of the Royal Australian Naval College like so many others have done since 1915 to pay our respect to the men and women of the Australian and New Zealand Armed Services who lost their lives in the service of their country.  It was a moving ceremony held against the beautiful backdrop of Jervis Bay.  As the Last Post was being played by Garry James the sun showed itself from behind the golden clouds casting a beautiful glow across the ceremony.
