Chrysoprase took a break this Monday as Australia and in particular the tiny town of Marlborough, paid homage to its fallen soldiers. As is customary in every town, village and city across Australia the community gathers before dawn to commemorate the fallen. The sombre service is held just before dawn and includes the ode
" They shall not grow old as we that are left grow old, age shall not weary them nor the years condemn, at the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will rember them ...Lest We Forget"
The Dawn Service in Marlborough, was conducted by our friend Bill Stacey, and was followed as is tradition by a Community Breakfast. Almost all of the 65 people population attended this sombre and patriotic event.
