Very special

Thank you for your service...

Amazing photos on a special day your mates with you in spirit thank you for your service.

Thank you

My Brother In Law led the Queensland Police contingent in the Brisbane ANZAC Parade for a couple of years running some years ago. Respect for these people.

It was always a challenge and an honour to write the operation orders for this and the many other major City Anzac Day events in my time at Metro Area Office - 1967 to '82.

It should be called the no more Nazis march. That was the whole point you know

Get rid of the Nazis. Not let them in Australian government hello idiots

Cops are tops

Congratulations a job well down

This Contingent ,Smart ,Proud ,Tough

Let the traditions continue!

Great experience for me as guest of Manly Warringah Pipe Band! I was really touched and as Swiss a never forgetable day!!! 🇦🇺🇨🇭

G’day mates, I’m Bluey 💙

The nickname Bluey originated in the 1890s and was used as a nickname throughout World War One to refer to red-haired soldiers of the Australian Imperial Force. During the Second World War, nearly every redhead was nicknamed Bluey, and it spread to civilian life.

G'day, Bluey!! Was Bluey the little joey you found with Roger and you were never able to find his mother so had to rear him yourself, Brolga? If so he was the very first joey we ever met on our very first visit to the Sanctuary years ago and I have a photo of him as a tiny baby posing with us all that Danny kindly took. Shall I send you a copy? Have a lovely Hump Day. :-) Lots of love xxx

Bluey because of red hair? I don't get the connection.

Like father like son!

Monty was wanting to fight me this morning....which is not usual for him. Monty is alpha male and is becoming just like his dad Roger used to be when he was alpha male. Monty stands taller than me and I’m 2 metres (6ft7). What a beautiful alpha male!


Comment on Facebook

I don't know what's more impressive: Monty or learning that you're 6ft 7!

Wow he is buff. Can you ask him how he got those pecs? Id like to build some muscle. Lol. Be careful out there.

he's got some Roger in him alright... but Roger's pecs are unequaled to date. Me thinks.

Will he let you touch him at other times?

Whoa, no mistaking it. I can see they're eating, but is any of his mouth activity part of his warning to you?

That is rather unusual for Monty what made Monty want to attack you?? I bet roger had a word and said son you're not behaving like me

What do you do in that case?

What made Monty feel Alpha today? He did look like he was in attack mode when on hind legs? Hope he's having a calmer evening🐾❤️

Give him the tin bucket like his dad lol

Gorgeous specimens! You look after them so well! He's very alike to Roger...Could Monty grow any taller ?

That is so impressive. What percentage of males in the wild grorw to be this size?

Is he bigger than Roger? He is a beauty!

I remember Monty from when I visited last year! Strong and beautiful!! 💪🏼😊

Really takes after his dad - magnificent beast! :-) Does he ever try to chase you, Brolga? Hope you've still got plenty of trees around to get behind! :-) You take care around Monty. John wants to know if you still take the tours into the bit beside the boy's enclosures or is Monty not to be trusted to leap over the fence? Have a great week. Lots of love xxx P.S. How is Roger doing?

ok now.... did he jump at you? Like, "Get out of my area." And if you hadn't jumped back... would he have attacked you?

Holy s$#! He looks like he's 10 feet tall and ready to bring it on!

Wow! He’s pretty buff. All that time in the gym is really paying off! Lol

Sure glad u can move quick or Monty would hv won and that wouldn't hv been good. He sure is tall and handsom WOW

He said back off with our saying a word. Lol 😍

He really looks like he means business!! He is sure handsome. Please be careful around him. He definitely wants to be the Boss.

Ahh yes can see Roger in all that! The next chapter 🤣😳.

Oh Monty you r definitely Rogers boy 💙

Wowza, Monty is letting you know the boundaries!

Monty looks very majestic just like Roger

Makes you realize the threat is always there!
