ON 11 November 1918 the German Government of the day accepted the terms of the Armistice presented to them by the Allied Nations.

At 11:00 am that day the guns officially fell silent, bringing to an end four terrible years for mankind known as the First World War.

Initially known as Armistice Day, Commonwealth Countries changed the name to Remembrance Day after World War II as a day where the fallen of both wars would be remembered.

Now, at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month each year the nation pauses to remember the sacrifices that result from all wars and conflicts Australia has played a role in.

Across the Myall Coast Remembrance Day Services will be conducted, providing an opportunity for locals to gather and reflect on the terrible cost of conflict on our country.

For those who are unable to make it to an official service it is appropriate to pause for one minute’s silence in your home school or workplace at 11:00 am on Friday 11 November to remember those who fell or suffered as a result of conflict.

Bulahdelah has a rich history of commemorating Remembrance Day, and will once again offer a Service at the town’s Cenotaph.

Steve Newman, Secretary of the Bulahdelah RSL sub-Branch told News Of The Area, “The history of service of the community of Bulahdelah is detailed in a series of storyboards.

“This year we are working to see these storyboards go to the families of those mentioned as we no longer have a safe space to store this history.”

In Tea Gardens the Service will start at 10.45am at ANZAC Park, however this year’s Remembrance Day commemorations will not include a march.

Jennifer Ross-Henry of the Tea Gardens Hawks Nest RSL sub-Branch told News Of The Area, “Refreshments will be served at the Country Club.

“It will be poignant as some of our members, who have been very active in the community, have passed since the last Service.

“To remember individual people in the Service is very special.”
