Freo's View


Posted in fremantle, history, photography, remembrance day, war by freoview on November 11, 2016


I don’t feel too well today so I nearly forget to go to the Fremantle remembrance day ceremony at Monument Hill, but happy I did not miss the important tradition which was initiated by former Freo firefighter Chris Grisenwood and his mate Vic about 14 years ago. Vic, whose last name I unfortunately don’t know, told me today he is 92 years old.

Politicians Simone McGurk, Lyn McLaren and Simon O’Brien were present, as was Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt and many spectators.

    The Guides on duty at the Round House, together with visitors who were with us in the Round House, observed the minute’s silence this morning.
    Disappointing to see some National flags in the City being flown atop their masts this morning though.
