Fun army tradition upheld
CRIES of delight and frustration could be heard echoing through the halls of the Warwick RSL yesterday afternoon.
King's Theatre was the temporary arena for some Anzac Day fun when dozens gathered to play Two-Up.
Ring keeper for the afternoon and current army reserve member Wayne Trim said it was great to see everyone enjoy themselves.
"They all know the rules to the game and everyone has a great time," Mr Trim said.
"We do this every Anzac Day and it is great to re-enact what the diggers did.
"It is a favourite traditional past-time in the Australian Defence Force so it is nice to see it carried on and through the different generations."
Returned and former serviceman Dale Randall said the game was meant to be a bit of entertainment.
"It is a bit of fun with the boys and I do it every year," he said.
"When I was in the army we only used to play on Anzac Day as well."
