Dubbo veterans have spoken of their delight with the enthusiasm the younger generation seems to have for Anzac Day.
A group of veterans who gathered at the Dubbo RSL Memorial Club on Anzac Day spoke about the importance of passing the tradition on to younger generations.
The oldest serving Veteran among the group Trevor Hampson said that for a while there [A few years back] Anzac Day was looking as though it was going a bit flat.
"We thought that it might be the end of it, but they've got the young ones in on it," Mr Hampton said.
The four veterans who reunited at the club for breakfast after the dawn service said it was good to catch up and to honor the memory of those who served in the name of our country.
Veteran John Allen said that it was important for him and for the other veterans to pay their respects, and to honour the fellow Veterans who are no longer with us.
"We've all lost good friends during their service," Mr Allen said.
"We also just enjoy everybody's company and coming together.
"Some of us see each other once a week, others not."
But according to the Veterans in more recent times the youth have really gotten involved in Anzac Day, and the newer generations are taking the initiative to learn about Anzac Day.
"We try and pass the memory on season to season, and as the young ones come up they learn all about it [Anzac Day]," Mr Hampton said.
"In Sydney, the young lass that represented the youth, she didn't even read a note, she just spoke straight out.
Mr Allen said that the four Veterans, including Mr Hampton, Graham Lummis and Graham Palm, as-well-as other Dubbo Veterans, would enjoy today's march along Wingewarra, Macquarie and Talbragar Street.
"Some of us will be marching, a couple of us won't be marching, we will get a lift in one of the vehicles," Mr Allen said.
Mr Hampton laughed, stating the veterans who would e in the car "will just sit back and enjoy."
It is a big day for most of the Veterans, but according to Mr Allen, they will continue to make an appearance at each service throughout the day.
