Reserve Forces Day 2013

The Reserve Forces Day, held on Sunday 7 July, saw the three services assemble on a fine day in Hyde Park North and then march down Macquarie Street to form up in front of Parliament House. The senior VIP, Air Marshall Mark Biskin, arrived with a NSW Police and a Light Horse escort. After the formalities the parade marched off down Macquarie Street giving an eyes right and after a couple of turns was dismissed in Phillip Street near the NSW Leagues Club, where the post parade reunion was enjoyed by the parade participants.
