REMEMBRANCE DAY – Thursday 11:00am
We remember… on 11 November 1918 at 11:00am the guns fell silent, and hostilities ceased on the Western Front. On the first anniversary of the armistice in 1919, two minutes’ silence began and was quickly and universally adopted to commemorate the victory of the Allies in the First World War.
The 11th of November is now known as REMEMBRANCE DAY, when at 11:00am we pause and remember all who died and suffered for Australia’s cause in all wars and armed conflicts.
They went with songs to the battle, they were young,
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted;
They fell with their faces to the foe.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
LEST WE FORGET
