EX-SERVICEMEN and women are invited to proudly march behind the Anzac Centenary flame this Sunday at the Violet Town Centenary of Remembrance, which will be an event for the history books.

It will be the first time Victorians will see the historic torch when it is presented to the state on Anzac Day.

Violet Town RSL sub-branch president Ross Walker has issued an invitation to all ex-servicemen and women to march behind the flame during the RSL Centennial of Service Torch as part of the ex-service contingent.

The Centenary of Remembrance will also include the rededication of the Violet Town 1917 Avenue of Remembrance, with RSL Victoria vice-president Major George Logan unveiling a plaque for the occasion.

Mr Walker said the inclusion of an item of such historical significance was a welcome addition to the day’s proceedings.

“They weren’t going to display it in Melbourne until Anzac Day,” he said.
