• Tributes set to flow

    Remembrance Day
    PROUD: Audrey Busst (left) and Sheila Kennedy at the Myrtleford RSL Club ahead of this Sunday’s Remembrance Day. Towns across the Alpine Shire will stop to pay tribute to our fallen, past and present servicemen with services at 11am.

    AUDREY Busst, now 92, admits her late husband Tommy did not talk about the war much.

    Mr Busst served in Papua New Guinea and Bougainville, while his father before him fought in World War One.

    Both led ANZAC Day marches in Myrtleford for many years, and Tommy had two stints as president of the 99-year-old Myrtleford RSL Club.

    In the Bussts you saw a determination to remember the sacrifice of our servicemen and women and a strong desire to let their memory live on, a notion that will be at the forefront this Sunday when the nation takes a minute to pay respect to our soldiers 100 years after the end of WWI.
