NELSON Bay’s rain-affected Anzac Day service was all about remembering unsung heroes.

In a truncated ceremony brought in out of the wet to the confines of the Nelson Bay Bowling Club, Williamtown-based Wing Commander Lee de Winton thanked the hundreds packed into the service for paying their respects on a day that has ‘‘surpassed its physical meaning’’.

Wing Commander de Winton, who spent six months in Afghanistan last year, said that to her, the day represented the ‘‘courage, sacrifice and self-reliance’’ shown by participants in all conflicts.

She also told the crowd she wanted to bring their attention to the contributions of the ‘‘fairer sex’’, citing the roles played by women from Joan of Arc and Florence Nightingale to Nancy Wake and the women who serve in conflicts today.

‘‘When we speak of veterans, we usually think of brave men wearing their medals [but] women have also played key roles, not just on the home front, for centuries,’’ she said.

She also paid tribute to ‘‘unsung heroes’’ such as the journalists who covered wars, and the chaplains, nurses and surgeons who looked after those doing the fighting.

The day started in worrying fashion when the Nelson Bay

sub-branch vice-president, Norm Cason, collapsed during the dawn service.

Mr Cason, who had been slated to make the opening address at the main service, was treated by paramedics on the scene and went home to rest.

He later made enough of a recovery to return to Nelson Bay Diggers RSL where he delivered a speech at the veterans lunch.

The RSL sub-branch secretary Tony Minchin said he was doing ‘‘all right’’.

‘‘He’s not able to get up and down and dance about, but he’s doing toasts,’’ he said.

Mr Minchin led yesterday’s truncated service, and despite the weather preventing them holding the main service at the new cenotaph, he said he was happy with the event.

‘‘It was smaller and shorter, but everything else went according to plan,’’ he said.

‘‘You’ve got to consider not only the weather, but the safety aspect as well.’’

He said about 1500 turned out to the dawn service, despite the weather.

Williamtown RAAF Base 76 Squadron performed the Bay’s catafalque party.

Marches were cancelled across Port Stephens, with Tilligerry and Raymond Terrace also forced to hold services indoors.

In Raymond Terrace, marchers retreated under the cover of the bowling club’s sprawling green, which sub-branch secretary Bill Garrett called a ‘‘good spot’’ – ‘‘still outside, but out of that rain’’.

He said it was disappointing not to be able to hold the marches.

‘‘It definitely is; there’s a lot of preparation that goes into it and I think the populace expects to see it as well,’’ he said.
