Remembrance Day (11 November) marks the anniversary of the armistice which ended the First World War (1914–18). Each year Australians observe one minute’s silence at 11 am on 11 November, in memory of those who died or suffered in all wars and armed conflicts.
The National Remembrance Day Ceremony commences at 10.15 am. It will include a formal wreathlaying and will be attended by many high-level dignitaries and diplomats. Australian’s Federation Guard and the Band of the Royal Military College will be on parade. After the ceremony, families often place red poppies beside the names of relatives on the Memorial’s Roll of Honour, which lists over 102,000 Australians who have died in war.
