REMEMBRANCE Day on Saturday was an opportunity for every Australian to reflect on the lives lost to war and the service and sacrifice of our defence personnel.
Remembrance Day marked the anniversary of the World War I armistice in 1918 and is an important part of Australia’s history.
At the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, the nation observed a minute’s silence for those who have died serving our country in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations.
More than 1.5 million Australians have served in defence of our nation and our values and more than 102,000 have died. We honour all of them.
