Notes of gratitude fill sky

A SERVICE conducted at Laidley's Memorial Park recalled the work done by former and still-serving peacekeepers and peacemakers.

A feature of the service, the third organised by the Laidley RSL Sub-branch, was the releasing of yellow balloons, each containing a message of support for Australian troops serving overseas.

RSL Sub-branch president Mike Nowlan said anyone finding a balloon was asked to write a message of support and to release another yellow balloon with the same message in it.

Mr Nowlan also paid tribute to members of the Amberley-based No1 Combat Communications Squadron for their assistance with the service on Tuesday.

The Reverend Paul Andrianartos led the gathering in prayer, adding that whenever he thought of peacekeepers, he thought of the sayings "between the devil and the deep blue sea" and "between a rock and a hard place".
