Remembrance Day: 11 November

On 11 November 1918, the guns of the Western Front fell silent after four years of continuous warfare. An Armistice was signed, bringing an end to the First World War.

As a mark of respect, each year at 11am on 11 November, Australians stop in a minute’s silence to remember the fallen, those who have served and those who serve today.

There are many ways that you can commemorate Remembrance Day, visit the Queensland Veterans Portal for more information.
