On April 25th 1999, Hugh Williams attended the Dawn Service at ANZAC Cove in Turkey. After the service he baptised two Australian and one 41 Battery flags in the waters of the now very famous cove. One Australian flag and the 41 Battery flag were donated to the unit. He retained the other one for his own personal collection. The whole idea was suggested and paid for by L/Bombardier Paul Noyelles, a serving member in the Royal Australian Artillery.
