Remembrance Day 2020

Remembrance Day 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 the Armistice came into effect then. It's also a special time to pause and reflect on those who died in all wars, conflicts and operations.

 

On Remembrance Day, we acknowledge those who have served and continue to serve our country. All Australians can:

  • think about why they pause to reflect
  • attend their local Remembrance Day services
  • stop for 1 minute's silence

A Service will be held at The Burt Crook Memorial outside the CHPRSL Club starting at 10:45am, 11 November 2020.

COVID restrictions will apply and must be observed.

THE ODE OF REMEMBRANCE

They went with songs to the battle, they were young.
Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
Lest we Forget.


The "Ode" is taken from Laurence Binyon's poem
"For the Fallen" 

"The Price of Liberty is Eternal Vigilance"
