Each year on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month we pause to remember those who have died or suffered for Australia’s cause in all wars and armed conflicts.
This year marks the Centenary of the Armistice and we remember the service and sacrifice of the Diggers of the First World War who served our nation and help to shape our national identity.
We remember the more than 60,000 men killed during World War One and the 156,000 who were taken prison.
We remember those that stormed the beach at Gallipoli and those who fought along the Western Front and in the Middle East.
This year we have paused to remember the Centenary of the Battle of Villers-Bretonneux, the Battle of Hamel and the Battle of Amiens.
Each of these Battles fought throughout the First World War were witness to the bravery, honour and sacrifice of our Australian Diggers.
We remember every one of our men and women who have served this nation in the Anzac Spirit of endurance, courage, sacrifice and mateship.
Lest We Forget.
