Dawn Parade

Words by Philippa Werry
Illustrations by Jennifer Cooper

With his dad, Leo watches the marchers with their medals glinting, listens to the speeches and the “Last Post”, and joins in singing the national anthem. After the service, Leo and Dad leave poppies on the war memorial and read the names of those who have died. Keyword: Anzac
