Wagga's traditional Anzac Day March attracted a strong crowd on Thursday morning with spectators treated to warmer than average weather.
As the 80th anniversary of the start of World War Two approaches, there were still a number of veterans from Australia's campaigns in Europe and the Pacific at the march.
The procession along Baylis Street from Morgan Street to the Victory Memorial Gardens took place under a bright and sunny sky.
The crowd applauded veterans, family members and men and women currently serving in the armed forces.
A major feature of marches through the years, the Wagga and District Highland Pipe Band, set the pace with renditions of 'Scotland the Brave' and 'Along the Road to Gundagai'.
Robin Lindsay, aged 94 from Wagga, has lost count of the number of marches he has taken part in.
The former British Army engineer and D-Day veteran was driven in the procession in a 1943 Jeep by its owner Tony Edwards.
Mr Lindsay said Mr Edwards usually did a "good job" of driving.
Mr Edwards said his jeep, which was used in Borneo, was one of the few that made it back from the war.
Mr Edwards said Mr Lindsay was also "lucky to still be here" as he was tasked with defusing landmines during the Allied invasion of Europe.
Federal Riverina MP and Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack, state Wagga MP Joe McGirr and Wagga City Council Mayor Greg Conkey took part in the march, which also featured Air Force and Army cadets and the city's scout groups.
The march and subsequent commemorative service received flyovers from a Royal Australian Air Force Super Air King B300 transport aircraft and a CA-16 Wirraway light bomber from the Temora Aviation Museum.
Amy Springfield, from Wagga, took part in her first Anzac Day March with her grandfather Rick, a Vietnam veteran after watching the event from the sidelines for a number of years.
"I've always wanted to do so I thought this year would be a good year," she said.
Rick said he was "usually on my own" in the march but he was proud this year to have Amy wear her great grandfather's medal in the parade.
Gloria Blacka, from Wagga, said she attended the march every year with her family.
"It's great to be able to watch and I'm so grateful to the servicemen and servicewomen," she said.
"Without them, we wouldn't be able to live like we do in a free land."
Former sailors from the HMAS Wagga, a vessel that served in World War Two and the Korean War, also joined in the march after travelling to the city for their biennial reunion.
