Marching along King Streetc.1931

by Sam Hood & Ted Hood
Returned Light Horsemen solemnly march along King Street, during the Anzac Day ceremony. It is probably Australia's most important national occasion, marking the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces on 25 April 1915. By the 1920s it had become established as a national day of commemoration for the 60000 Australians who died during the war. In 1927 all States uniformly observed a public holiday on Anzac Day for the first time.
