A serviceman at Australia's first Anzac Day commemoration since the pandemic began suffered an awkward slip-up when he forgot his microphone was on.

Following a minute of silence, a children's choir was supposed to start singing, but had trouble getting set up in time, resulting in a pause.

Mortified North Bondi sub-branch officials have acknowledged the unfortunate incident and deleted the video to avoid a 'pile-on'.
