Remembrance Day brought memories 'flooding back'

THE son of slain Sydney detective Bryson Anderson took centre stage at the NSW Police Remembrance Day service where thousands turned out to honour his father.

With NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione by his side, 10-year-old Cain placed a wreath before the Wall of Remembrance where Det Insp Anderson's name had been inscribed.

It's been seven months since the senior officer from Windsor, in Sydney's north-west, was fatally stabbed at the scene of a neighbourhood dispute at Oakville.

Mr Scipione told the crowd at Sydney's Domain on Friday said the service brought "it all flooding back".

Paying tribute to Det Anderson, Mr Scipione said his former colleague's courage and dedication were an example to all and the service was a reminder that each day, hundreds of brave men and women started work not knowing what they day would bring and were prepared to risk their lives to help others.

A National Remembrance Day was also held in Canberra.
