Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day is one of the most important days on our commemorative calendar.

It's a day when we acknowledge those who lost their lives during conflicts, in wars and peacekeeping or humanitarian 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 around the world 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 special time to remember the commitment of those who have fought to protect our nation.

I have worked in the Aged Care Sector for 10 years, which I fell in love with.
