Letter: why was Anzac dawn march cancelled?

I was completely surprised when I found out that the Dawn Service March had been cancelled due to safety issues.

As someone who has marched for over 26 years and has seen the amount of people attending both the march and service increase enormously over time, I can't understand why the march has been cancelled.

I am not sure what safety issues would occur at 5.30 in the morning, and there is something very special waiting for the soldiers get ready then march and we all follow.

Seeing many disgruntled comments on Facebook about the cancellation, I know I am not the only person who feels this way. I hope this is the only year this happens.
