A pause to remember

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.

Dan Tehan,

Minister for Veterans’ Affairs
