Campbelltown City Band provided the music for the Anzac Day Dawn Service at the Payneham Garden of Remembrance. This service conducted by the Payneham RSL saw one of the largest attendances for a long time. The excellent weather and an increase in interest of younger families is considered the reason for making the Payneham Dawn Service one of the largest in suburban Adelaide.

Following a breakfast provided by the RSL, those band members able to march joined with colleagues from Para Hills Brass Band for the annual street parade in Adelaide. It seems that each year there are fewer band members able to march, carry and play instruments and breathe at the same time. Para Hills also provided the Drum Major at the last minute due to a family bereavement changing the plans of Campbelltown’s usual DM, Peter Dunlop.

The front line of members of the 10/27 Battalion Veteran Drum Corp provided a very solid percussion foundation which could be heard from quite a distance.

Photos of the march were taken off the TV broadcast.
