Video of WW1 vehicles in street parade in Wellington today

What day to be at home sick! I had planned for weeks to attend the Anzac commemoration parade today, but bronchitis holds back for no man.

And what an event it turns out I missed. Beautiful weather; big crowds; loads of WW1 trucks, buses, tanks and horse-drawn guns; young period soldiers who actually  looked the part; a sea of red poppies; stirring haka from schoolboys as the parade passed ... wow!

Watch the above video from Stuff, or go to the New Zealand Herald to see these (and more) photos:

Wellington volunteer figure painter Phil Sirvid also sent me the following photos, which he is happy to share here on the blog.
