VETERANS at Boyne-Tannum are encouraged by the increasing amount of youths each year to Anzac services.

RSL Sub-branch president Ian Anderson said it's great young people are acknowledging past military history.

"It's a history-learning exercise for them," Mr Anderson said.

"(They) understand where their grandfathers and great grandfathers have come from, what they went through and the trauma."

The sub-branch estimated 500 people attended the morning march and service at Stirling Park.
