Dubbo RSL Memorial Club's Henry Skewpeck claims the tradition of two-up is a bittersweet show of appreciation to our service men.
Two-up, which in New South Wales is only legal to play on Anzac Day, Victory of the Pacific Day (15 August) and Remembrance Day, is a game diggers played during wartime where players bet on whether two coins will fall with both heads up, both tails up, or with one coin a head and one a tail.
The annual RSL Two-up event on Anzac Day attracted a great turn-out.
President of the Dubbo RSL sub-branch Tom Grey had a go at flipping the coins, and he walked away a richer man for it.
In the first half-hour, three Veterans and a roll of guests stepped into the square to have a go at the game.
Some were as lucky as Mr Grey, and others not so much.
Mr Grey encouraged those that won to donate a portion of their winnings back to returned services charities.
The first game kicked off at 2pm led by Mr Skewpeck who was the Emcee of the event.
"It's good to see that the tradition of the game on Anzac Day is continuing," Mr Skewpeck said. "There's not a better way to commemorate our soldiers.
"The soldiers bonded over the game, a lot of the time it took their mind off the fear they were met with on a daily basis."
