Australians around the country gathered last Saturday, observing a minute’s silence at 11am, to commemorate Remembrance Day — honouring those who died serving in conflicts and peace-keeping operations.
On the lower north shore, hundreds marked the 105-year anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I in 1918.
This year marked the 105-year anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I in 1918.
While the national Remembrance Day service was held at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra, closer to home we had events in Mosman, North Sydney and Kirribilli.
The anniversary has evolved since it was first marked by allied countries after World War I, in which more than 60,000 Australians lost their lives.
November 11 is now observed around the world as a day to reflect on the sacrifice made by armed forces in service to their country.
