A flypast by the RAAF signaled the commencement of the 1914: WA Diggers Depart commemorative service at Victoria Quay, Fremantle. The Army Airforce and Navy Cadets looked striking as they marched onto the grounds where Her Excellency, the Hon Kerry Sanderson AO, Governor of WA took the salute.
One hundred years ago, more than 41,000 men and women from Australia and New Zealand set sail from Albany and Fremantle for the battlefields of World War I. On the 100 year anniversary, we remembered those who departed to WW1 from Fremantle. Lest we forget!
