Bulimba Remembrance Ceremony - 1 Sep 2015

Today a small simple ceremony was held at the Tobruk Memorial in the Romas Street Gardens in Brisbane.  It was attended by Steve Rowan, Doug Leslie and David Laurie - all sons of members of the 2/15th Battalion.

It was held to commerate and remember the battalion members who died or were wounded in this preparatory battle for El Alamein on 1 September 1942.

The location was chosen as there is no other site in Brisbane that comes close to commemorating what the battalion achieved in Operation Bulimba.

A simple wreath was laid, along with a short statement prepared by Doug.  See below.  The following photos were taken at the ceremony.  Photos are courtesy of those who attended on the day.
