WHERE TO: Commemorate Anzac Day

ONE hundred and four years on from the now infamous landing at Gallipoli, St George will take its turn to commemorate the Anzacs and diggers who have fought for their region and country.

David Purcell was inspired to join the navy at age 17 for adventure.

April 25 means a lot to him after his 10 years of service.

"It's a day to remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom," Mr Purcell said.

He is not alone, with hundreds of men and women from the Balonne Shire having headed to battlefields and operations over the past 104 years.

Services will be held today in St George and Bollon to commemorate those past and present serving servicemen and women who have been part of the army, navy, and air force.
