I've been wanting to see the soldiers from the Prince Alfred Guard either hoist or lower the giant flag on the Donkin Reserve for a while now but just haven't had a chance to do so. Big was my excitement when I was standing on top of the Donkin lighthouse with a media crew the other day when the soldiers arrived to lower it. Yay! If you look carefully at the base of the flagpole you will see six soldiers standing there waiting to catch the flag and put it away as it may not touch the ground.
I posted the same pic in HDR on the FireflyAfrica Facebook page.
