Brighton Cemetery Walk – ANZAC walk
April 30 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Brighton Cemetorians present their ANZAC walk – this walk will visit 8 service persons who have been honoured with a flag. Samuel Ettingove who pleaded with Authorities saying that it was his earnest desire to enlist as a British Australian soldier and not as a Russian. Nevertheless, his obvious sincerity convinced the authorities, an exception was made and his naturalisation was expedited but never ended up fighting for his new found land as he was killed riding his Motor Bike which collided with a Tram. Also on the walk are Gershon Bennett, Richard Ernest Lowday and others. Come and hear the stories of these brave and courageous people. This walk is part of the National Trust Australian Heritage Festival https://www.nationaltrust.org.au/ahf_event/honouring-those-who-served/
