This clip is from a 1970s home movie by Sara Charles showing footage of an Anzac Day parade through George Street, Sydney in 1977.

In the clip, the parade goes past the Sydney Hilton Hotel and the Town Hall Hotel. You can also see signs for Lowes, Gowings and Waltons stores on George St.

The Canberra Times reported that the Sydney march was led by representatives of the Army Nursing Corps, who were celebrating their 75th anniversary in 1977–78.

The parade also included five Boer War veterans among the estimated 20,000 marchers.
