As the rain stopped falling, Major General Matthew Pearce delivered the ANZAC Commemoration Address.

Major Pearce has served within the Australian Army for more than 30 years, in a career that included deployment to Iraq and Afghanistan.

He opened his speech by recognising a number of significant anniversaries that will be marked this year.

“This year marks the significant anniversary of a number of battles,” he said.

“The 80th anniversary of the Bombing of Darwin, the Fall of Singapore, the Battle of the Coral Sea and the Kokoda Campaign.”
