Scots' 62nd Annual Parade of Remembrance

A parade steeped in history

Almost 1,000 spectators gathered on Sunday 26 May to commemorate the profound service and sacrifice of Scots Old Boys and staff in times of war and conflict at The Scots College's 62nd Annual Parade of Remembrance.

Students, Old Boys, staff members, parents and members of the wider Scots community all attended this historical event which dates back to 1952 when the first Remembrance Day Parade was held. At the time, the College boasted the largest schoolboy Army Cadet Unit and Pipes and Drums in Australia which is still the case today.

According to the College, students now see the Parade as a rite of passage; their legacy to Scots' Old Boys.

"Scots' Parade of Remembrance commemorates the profound service and sacrifice of our Scots Old Boys and staff in times of war and conflict," said Dr Ian PM Lambert, Principal of The Scots College. "Their legacy lives on at The Scots College to this day, as our Scots boys are inspired by the generations of Scots Old Boys before them. May we be worthy of our forefathers."

Lieutenant Colonel Jared D Hill, special guest from the United States Army acted as the Reviewing Officer for the occasion. Lieutenant Colonel Hill served in the special forces for many years, and was been deployed on many peacetime and wartime operations throughout Africa and the Middle East.
