My speech in Parliament on the book and DVD launch of 'Craigieburn Remembers' - 20 August, 2018

Congratulations to Kevin O’Callaghan, President of The Craigieburn War Memorial & Remembrance Committee Inc, for all his hard work in launching the book and DVD ‘Craigieburn Remembers: The History of the Establishment and Dedication of the Craigieburn War Memorial ANZAC Park’ last month.

The book and DVD details the history of the campaign to erect a war memorial in Craigieburn. In fact as Kevin remembers it, it was Fred Tyrrell, a veteran of WWII, having served as a radiographer in the Army Medical Corps in Darwin and Papua New Guinea who first planted the seed in 2007 when he asked the very simple question ‘Why can’t Craigieburn hold its own ANZAC Day Service?’ Ten years later, in 2017, they did.
