Local ex-Nashos set for annual march
ABOUT 100 Gladstone ex-national servicemen and women are expected to march in the Nasho Day parade this afternoon.
National Service Association of Australia Gladstone secretary Des Dwyer said fall-in for the march would be at 4.45pm outside the Gladstone City Council offices.
The marchers will leave at 5pm, and led by the Gladstone Thistle Pipe Band, head along Goondoon Street to the Anzac Park cenotaph. Cadets of the 42nd Royal Queensland Regiment will also march and raise and lower the Australian flag.
Gladstone mayor Peter Corones and Member for Gladstone Liz Cunningham will officiate. The national anthem will be sung by Wendy Lanzon.
Mr Dwyer said all ex-national servicemen and women were encouraged to attend the march, the ceremony and the dinner at Yaralla Sports Club.
