Greenwich Hospital commemorates ANZAC Day

Greenwich Hospital staff and patients held a commemorative service today to honour the sacrifice made by those who have died in war.

Patients from the rehabilitation and mental health wards joined staff and visitors in the gym at 3.00pm for a service led by Greenwich Hospital’s pastoral care coordinators.

The service included prayers, readings and a personal address by Rev Steve Calder, who highlighted the gratitude felt for the soldiers who sacrificed their youth and future happiness for the love of their country and fellow man.

The sound of The Last Post rang through the halls of the hospital as Rev Steve Calder’s son Joel played the soulful tune, which was then followed by a minute’s silence.

Everyone in attendance was able to share the spirit of remembrance and gratitude, with patients appreciating the opportunity to show their respects at a time when they are unable to actively attend community services.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Lest we forget.
