Anzac Day, Brisbane, 1999.
With Saturday 24 April dedicated to recovering from the week long display and Regimental dinner the night before, this year's Anzac parade saw one of the largest turn outs of NGVR and PNGVR members 98 on parade. Unfortunately our supporting band from 9 RQR was unavailable, nevertheless we again paraded a very professional and well presented unit. The public applause was most stirring and as the unit passed the saluting stand, the Governor was heard to say "Well done PNGVR! Well done. "
