Dear Premier,

Please find attached a letter re the order of march on ANZAC Day.  I have
sent correspondence and had discussions with the current ANZAC Day
Committee.  All to no avail.  To me, they are trying to militarize the ANZAC
Day march with including weapons of war in  the march.  I believe this issue
has now been resolved but the march is far too long with more and more
service personnel marching.  I have included an email from Geoff Hall about
the time frame.  In previous years we would finish the march by 11:00 a.m.
Premier, I hope you can help with this issue.

——EMAIL FROM GEOFF HALL———

G’day blokes. Have just arrived home last Friday very weary after our trip
from Adelaide to home. Read the email about our position in the march this
year. Setting off at 11:20 means not marching until 11:45. Weren’t we (the
RAAF) last in the parade last year?? I know Perth has a constant Navy then
Army & then RAAF every year. If that is the case here I doubt if I will be
marching in Brisbane again. As for this year, I will be marching at the Gold
Coast.

Have fun.

Regards Geoff
