A CROWD of more than 4000 people attended the 2019 Greenwell Point Anzac Day dawn service - which marked the 104th anniversary of the landing of troops at Gallipoli.
Despite much controversy in the lead-up to the April 25 event, in which reports stated Navy personnel wouldn't march due to safety concerns, HMAS Albatross personnel were one of many groups that marched down Greenwell Point Road to Anzac Park, where the service was held.
Nowra RSL Sub-Branch again conducted the service led by president Fred Dawson, while Commander Fleet Air Arm Commodore Don Dezentje presented the commemorative address highlighting the many sacrifices Australian service personnel have made throughout the various conflicts.
Numerous wreaths were laid on behalf of individuals and various local organisations.
The service culminated in a spectator sunrise over the opening of the Shoalhaven River at Crookhaven Heads.
