There was quite the commotion on City Walk this morning as the Canberra Pipes and Drums Band, the RSL, and the Australian Federal Police, with the support of the ACT Government and the Legislative Assembly, launched the “Remember Them” campaign.
The purpose of the campaign is to get the crowd at Anzac Day events wearing the black “Thank You” t-shirts in appreciation of the veterans and serving defence personnel, (Which might be a touch chilly at the dawn service).
The shirts sell for $20 each and proceeds go to the ACT RSL. The plan is to grow this into a national thing.
Chief of Staff to Chief Minister Stanhope, Jeremy Lasek, has committed $2,500 to the campaign from Government coffers.
If you want to participate, details on where you can get there are online.
