At the national Anzac service on Anzac Day last month, Queen’s Representative Tom Marsters delivered what several people have since described to CINews as a particularly moving, poignant and powerful speech, with some noting that many present were even moved to tears by the QR’s words. The speech was largely based on two visits made by Marsters to Europe in recent. While space restrictions prevent us reproducing the entire speech, CINews thought it worthwhile reprinting some of the highlights, with thanks to His Excellency Tom Marsters and the QR’s official secretary Anthony Brown.
