In addition to Australians, New Zealanders and Irish people living locally, the ceremony will include representatives from the 18th Royal Irish Regiment.

Organisers are looking for local Australians and New Zealanders to take part in the event. Anyone interested in joining in is asked to contact organiser Andy Korff on 083 1006846.
