At the conclusion of the Albert Jacka memorial service, members and supporters of our Committee are invited to join us at the grave of Nurse Clarice Daley and Sergeant Ernest Lawrence - who both served on Lemnos and were the only Australians to be married there during the Gallipoli campaign - and who are also buried in the St Kilda Cemetery.
We will lay a wreath and welcome all others who wish to do so.
All welcome.
