Remember the Armistice with Myall Coast Radio


EACH year on 11 November, Australia and other countries hold a Commemoration Service to honour and remember the fallen soldiers of WW1.

Originally called Armistice Day, it was changed to Remembrance Day to include the fallen of WW2 and subsequent wars.

This year, Myall Coast Radio 87.8 hopes to broadcast a special Remembrance Day program titled Remember the Armistice.

The program has been put together by local resident Brian Jones with help from a number of friends, including six members of our local radio station.

Brian told News Of The Area, “Not many people are aware of the amazing poetry written by the soldiers themselves from the rat infested trenches in Belgium and France in WW1.

“The Soldier Poets, as they became known, wrote their poems in graphic, gut-wrenching, heart-breaking detail which illustrated in words the reality of the meaningless war, as opposed to the lying, sanitized propaganda espoused by newspapers and Governments.

“Using some of the poems, the radio program will graphically follow through WW1’s enthusiastic beginnings in 1914 to the thoughtless Peace Treaty of Versailles in 1919.

“It will endeavour to give the listeners every reason to REMEMBER the ARMISTICE.”
