These latest coins jacqui24 - the Braille ones - are for collectors.

A $2.00 coin was released to the general public some weeks ago - though none have come my way in change. (Not shopping enough perhaps. )

The new $1.00 is to also have colour frosting, and some of the $5.00 will be gold covered silver.


There is also to be a commerative photo book of the Games. Orders are being taken already.


And here's a photo of Harry doing Bridge Climb back in 2005 -

https://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/newpix/2...8722523629.jpg

That's Harry on the left.

Everyone has to get kitted up like this to do the climb.

Even the hanky you get given - sometimes windy up there and runny noses - is on an elastic band that goes around your wrist. Nothing is to fall onto the cars travelling below you.

This time he'll have our new Prime Minister beside him to raise the Invictus flag.

Part me is disappointed Meghan isn’t climbing the bridge with Harry, but as someone whose afraid of heights, I totally get it (though this might not be why she’s not doing it). I can go on roller coasters, but this? Nah. I’d be holding everyone behind me up because at some point, I wouldn’t be able to move up or down from the height.

That's a description of me, jacqui. I'd be saying thanks but no thanks to that experience!

Good on you Harry.

Long time Australian TV show "Australian Story" is having an episode around the Invictus Games.

I've just seen the promo and Harry has acutally filmed an introduction for the program.

The episode is airing this coming Monday evening Oz fans.

Here's the promo - (the top video.)

https://www.abc.net.au/austory/episodes/


And a longer version of Harry's intro in the clip a few posts down in the Invictus Games facebook -

https://m.facebook.com/InvictusSydney/

And a convoy of vehicles is rolling around four states of Australia, raising awareness of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

It will complete it's journey at the Invictus Games.

(So many different things tying in with Invictus.)

Sun Lion, I just want to say a big THANK YOU for keeping us up to date with the 'going ons' leading up to the Tour and the Games. It's always interesting to hear from people on the 'frontline.'

No problem JuliannaVictoria - it's been great fun.

I'm don't think I will see the couple in the flesh though - I'm expecting massive crowds, even if the weather cracks up. (Still very unsettled here.)

The area where Harry and Meghan will mingle with the general public at the Opera House will be open at 8.00am, but that is several hours before they will appear.

It will be closed once it reaches capacity.

(There will be security screening and bag checks to go through.)

I think there will be several hours of standing and waiting.

I think you have to go early to be sure of getting in, but plenty will.

I'm expecting plenty of helicopter action though - I live in the same suburb as Admiratly House - and there will be lots of noise whenever Harry and Meghan come or go.

The first official Invictus Games merchandise shop opened today.

Wouldn't suprise me if Harry made a quick visit.

Can't see how being stuck indoors - even at Admiralty House - would make them perky after the flight.

Despite being a rest day, best thing is not to sleep - especially if you got some on the plane.

Better to tune your body into the time of where you've arrived, and then get a good sleep tonight.

Thanks Dman. Just when I'm thinking I need to start looking for where I can watch something online, you're right there providing the information.

The Hyatt Regency Hotel threw a BBQ for the one thousand friends and supporters of the competitors who've arrived here.

For us in the US and the east coast, it all starts in two hours. 4:30 PM EST. I don't think I'll be awake to watch it but will catch it somewhere tomorrow if I can.
