Canberra - National Ceremony
Today we attend the National Ceremony to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of Armistice Day. On the 11th November 1918, at 11am the Guns of the Western Front fell silent and signalled the end of the First World War after years of continuous warfare. In the years that followed, this date attained special significance and remains so to this day. On this day we remember all those who died or suffered in all wars and armed conflicts. (Please note: umbrellas are not permitted at the ceremony. It is recommended that you take a hat and sunscreen as there is no shelter). Following the conclusion of the service the remainder of the day is yours to explore the Australian War Memorial, taking the opportunity to purchase your own lunch today at Poppy's Café at the Memorial. You may choose to stay until closing where a moving Last Post Ceremony is held in the Commonwealth Courtyard and shares the story behind one of the names on the Roll of Honour.
