Memorial Service marked 72 years since the attack on Sydney Harbour

Since 1995, an annual commemoration service has been conducted at the Defence of Sydney Monument on North Head to mark the night that war came to Sydney.
This year The Australian Lebanese Chamber of Commerce was invited to lay a wreath during the service on Friday, 30 May 2014.
The service commenced at 10.00am sharp with the Prime Minister, The Hon. Tony Abbott MP as the day’s MC. This event marked the 72nd anniversary of a WWII submarine attack on Sydney Harbour.
Mr Abbott introduced the guest speaker for the event, writer and historian Les Carlyon, who has written award winning books Gallipoli and The Great War.
Mr Carlyon spoke about the upcoming centenary of ANZAC, marking the Allied landing at Gallipoli in 1915.
The service was generously supported by the Sydney Harbour Federation Trust.
