Remembrance Day – end of World War One
Remembrance Day is one of the most important days on the commemorative calendar. It’s a day when we acknowledge those who died while serving in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations. Remembrance Day is held on 11 November each year. This is the anniversary of the Armistice that ended fighting with Germany in World War I. People in Australia, and many other countries, observe 1 minute’s silence at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month because that’s when the Armistice came into effect. It’s a time to honour our service personnel who died in service of Australia.
