This is indeed a huge honor and will undoubtedly provide significant exposure for our Association. Accordingly, we will be looking for a substantial contingent to make us all proud. There is no need to have overseas service or medals to take part in this March, just be an ex-Army Apprentice. The second highlight is the Last Post Ceremony at the Australian War Memorial on 26 April 2018 where an Army Apprentice will be honoured.
