‘ANZAC DAY 2019’ – BACK TO THE BATTALION!
The True soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him. We have all served together so let’s stay together and never forget those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
2 RAR’s theme for our Dawn Service this year is ‘Back to the Battalion’.
The CO, LTCOL Judd Finger and the RSM, WO1 Jason Sten CSM would like to invite all current and Ex-serving members back to the Battalion for the Battalion’s Dawn Service. Come and help the Battalion commemorate ANZAC Day. Make the effort to travel back to the Battalion for ANZAC day and host your own little reunion. If you are flying in or driving, the RSM aims to get a serving soldier to host you or your group at the gathering. Don’t miss out!!!

With Syd some of the guys from out of town and the outer suburbs of Sydney stay at the Travelodge near Wynyard Station, we don’t get a discount but it is close to the bar we drink at.
Some of us will be meeting at the Concourse Bar under Wynyard St for a shotgun breaky and we will be drinking there after the march.
The bar is run by a X commando and some guys from 3 RAR work as bouncers ( all in the family ) and the train station is right out side the door so easy to get home.
