April 24, 2018

Tatura RSL members Mal Watts, Vince Vincitorio and Robert Mathieson were busy tidying up the Private Robert Mactier VC Memorial Gardens in time for Anzac Day celebrations.

Tomorrow we remember those who served our country and pay our respects to all fallen heroes.

Tatura RSL Sub-Branch will be holding a dawn service in the Private Robert Mactier VC Memorial Gardens in Hogan St at 5.30am followed by breakfast.
