Darwin Defenders Commemorative Ceremony

Darwin Defenders 1942-1945 Commemoration Ceremony will be held annually at the Shrine of Remembrance, on February 19, for the anniversary of the day that Darwin was bombed and war came to Australia.

The ceremony will honour those who served and those who died during the attacks on Darwin during 1942 - 1945. It is an opportunity for veterans, their families, dignitaries and school students from across Melbourne to participate in a moving ceremony that aims to remind us all of the cost of preserving peace and democracy in Australia.

We welcome you to join us on this important occasion. If you would like to be included on the invitation list please send your contact details to Bernadette Lightfoot at Ryebuck Media bern@ryebuck.com.au
