Remembrance Day has come to signify a moment where, as a nation, we pause collectively to reflect on past conflicts.

Today at 11:00am, we stop for one minute’s silence in honour of those who have served- some two million men and women, who have taken up our nation’s uniform.

We honour all Australians who have served and reflect on the sacrifice they made to keep our nation safe, including the more than 102,000 defence personnel who have tragically died during, or as a result of, wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations.

Since the guns first fell silent on the Western Front, Armistice Day, as it was formerly known, has gained special significance in the post-war years.

Today, on Remembrance Day we honour and pay tribute to our current and former service personnel and their families who have sacrificed so much.
