2022 ANZAC Day in the Inner West

  Tuesday 19 April 2022

Inner West Council and Balmain-Rozelle RSL will hold an ANZAC Day Commemorative Dawn Service at Balmain’s Loyalty Square from 6am on Monday 25 April.

Balmain War Memorial has a venerable history. It was unveiled on Sunday 23 April 1916 – with the First World War (or The Great War as it was then known) still raging in Europe, and before the first anniversary of the Gallipoli landings.

During that Great War, around 5,000 men from Balmain enlisted – this was just about all of those eligible in the precinct.

The memorial initially commemorated the local men who had died in the Dardanelles campaign.

The 38 local men who perished on Turkish shores have their names on four marble tablets, one on each side of the monument. Since then, new names were added from later wars.

Petersham RSL is also hosting a dawn service.

Petersham Town Hall, 25 April, 6am with doors opening from 5.40am.

Ashfield RSL will hold a small wreath laying service on Sunday.

Ashfield RSL Club, Sunday 24 April, 10,30am.

Call 9797 8878 for more information.
