In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the ANZAC landing at Gallipoli

We remember the thousands of men and women from Richmond
who bravely volunteered to serve their country
throughout the terrible conflicts of World War I.

United in courage and spirit,
these brave Australians came from many cultural backgrounds,
including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander,
and sacrificed much for the freedom that we have today.
