Wall to Wall Remembrance Ride

Published: Wednesday 20 September 2023

On the morning of Friday 15th September, the annual ‘Wall to Wall Remembrance Ride’ with over 300+ Police Members, Police Veterans and Community Members on motorbikes left from the ‘Victoria Police Memorial’ in St Kilda Road, Melbourne, to ride to Canberra to meet up with riders from police jurisdictions from across Australia. The following morning, this annual event, which is now in its 14th year and held in support of Police Legacies throughout Australia, saw over 2000 motorbikes converge on the ‘National Police Memorial’ for the ‘National Wall to Wall Remembrance Service’. 

This year, young Victoria Police Legatee Josh Paoli, accompanied by his sister Sam, carried the ‘Chief Commissioners Baton’ and placed it at the ‘National Police Memorial’ in honour and in remembrance of his father, the late Sergeant Marco Paoli VA and all those who have served but who are no longer with us.
