The ANZAC march started after the first world war to commemorate the contribution from the ANZAC forces. They went on until the late 1950's. Today the Northamptonshire Branch of the Western Front Association holds an Anzac service at the Towcester Road cemetery to remember 11 members of the Australian forces from the First World War who died in Northampton and other servicemen from Australia and New Zealand who are buried elsewhere in the county. This particular photograph has Mr Gibbs as the mayor.
