The Wearing of Medals and Decorations

Traditionally War medals may only be worn on the left breast by the persons upon whom they were conferred.

It is customary for family members who are marching in memory of a deceased family member to wear their forebears medals on the right breast, this indicates that they are not their own.

General Information

The temperature forecast for Anzac Day is generally around 25°. It is therefore recommended that patrons apply sunscreen, wear a hat and shirt with collar and bring a bottle of water.
