Gosford RSL will hold a service at the Gosford Cenotaph, with Sub-Branch President, Greg Mawson, anticipating a strong turn-out.

“We’re expecting an attendance of over 2,000 people," he told CCN.

“It’s a good day to remember not only those who fell in World War I; it’s also to remember all of our soldiers who fell in conflicts.”
