The Aboriginal Ex-Servicemen of N.S.W. made history in July when they took part in the first all-Aboriginal Commemoration Service at the Anzac War Memorial, Hyde Park, Sydney.
The ceremony was part of the National Aborigines' Day and was held to honour the participation of Aboriginals in the Defence Forces fighting for their country in major wars.
Led by Captain Reg Saunders, a group of nearly 40 Aboriginal Ex-Servicemen assembled in Hyde Park and then marched along the main Park Avenue to the Memorial where they were inspected by the Lieut-Governor of N.S.W., Sir Kenneth Street.
