Lest we forget

It was a respectful, masked and socially distanced crowd that gathered at Castlemaine’s cenotaph on Wednesday – to Remember.
The threat of Covid might still be lurking, but the assembled crowd was not about to let eleven am on the eleventh day of the eleventh month pass without due notice.
The minute’s silence honouring those who died fighting to protect the nation in WWI, and conflicts since, was observed along with The Last Post, the Australian National Anthem and a brief address by Castlemaine RSL president John Whiddon. See the Mail for the full story.
