Flyover puts finishing touch on M'boro Anzac Day march

A FLYOVER from an F-18 Super Hornet finished off the official ceremonies for Anzac Day in Maryborough on Friday morning.

Crowds lined the footpaths from Adelaide St to Bazaar St to applaud the marching veterans and filled up Queens Park to pay their respects during the main ceremony.

Marchers included Second World War veterans and their descendants, the 6th Battalion A Company, a contingent from the Royal Australian Navy and the emergency services.  

Representatives from groups such as Legacy, the Ex Prisoner of War association, A Company and navy and air force cadets laid wreaths as did several families in memory of their loved ones who served.

Deputy Prime Minister Warren Truss laid a wreath on behalf of the Federal Government.
