I was lucky enough to march at the St Heliers ANZAC Day Parade with my Scout Troop.  I think it is important to be involved as the men who went over to war, many of them never returned and they went so we could have peace, and it's a chance for us to honour them as well as those who did come back.  For me, an interesting link between St Philip's Church and my Scout Group is that Sgt Brookfield was a member of the parish and our 1st Scoutmaster.  He was killed in action during the war, and the St Heliers parade gives us a chance to honour him, and other Scouts, by laying wreaths at the Brookfield Memorial on the waterfront.
