About 3000 people braved the early morning chill at the dawn service to mark the start of Orange's Anzac Day commemorations this morning.

Orange mayor John Davis began proceedings by reciting the ode before the Orange Male Voice choir sung Abide With Me.

Anglican archdeacon Frank Hetherington told the crowd they were united in silence and remembrance with thousands at dawn services across the country.

Many from the crowd made the way to the Ex-Services Club after the service to warm up with breakfast and coffee with a shot of rum.
