96 year old Wally Scott-Smith retires after 78 years guarding Martin Place Cenotaph on Anzac Day

Thanks to Jason Morrison for this inspiring story of selfless service to others.

Wally Scott-Smith retired yesterday after 78 years guarding the Martin Place Cenotaph on ANZAC Day.
He’s 96 years old, and tried to sign-up for WW2, but was ineligible because of bad health. So, he’s seen caring for the memorial as his service. 
Yesterday, after the Dawn Service, he was given a standing ovation and acknowledged by The Governor.
Wally would attend every major service across the year in Martin Place, and carried a box of tissues to “offer ladies who were overwhelmed and teared up”. 
Another of our finest generation.
