DEDICATION OF THE SOLDIERS' CEMETERY.

Elaborate arrangements are made by the A.I.F. Cemetery Trust, for the dedication of the Soldiers' Cemetery, West-terrace, on Sunday afternoon. His Excellency the

Governor (Sir Tom Bridges) will deliver an address and unveil the head tablets erected on the graves of those who have died since returning from the great war. The ceremony will be of a religious na- ture, and will be conducted by chaplains who saw oversea service. That beautiful hymn, "The Supreme Sacrifice," which, was beard at the burial of the Unknown Warrior in London, will be sung on this occasion. The Returned Sailors' and Sol- diers' Imperial League is extending mili- tary honors in the form of a "Slow March" by a parade of troops from West- terrace to Light Oval, at 2.15, headed by their band. At the conclusion of the ser- vice three volleys will be fired by the firing party, and the "Last Post" will be sounded on the bugle. The Adelaide Sil- ver Citadel Band will play before and after the service. Mr. A. F. L. Harper (secretary of the trust), who has the ar- rangements in hand, states that permis- sion has been granted by the City Council for owners of motor cars and other vehicles to park them in Sturt-street. The general public are asked to be on the grounds not later than 2.45, so that the roaa leading to light Oval (which is narrow) will be free from pedestrians for the mounted escort that will accompany his Excellency the Governor.
