REMEMBRANCE Day will be commemorated at the Kwinana War Memorial on Saturday, November 11 at 11am.

Remembrance Day evolved from the WWI Armistice that occurred at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th Month in 1918, which ended hostilities on the Western Front between Germany and the Allied nations and effectively led to ending WWI.

Kwinana RSL sub-branch secretary Terry Rusden said on Remembrance Day 2017 members would remember all those who have served in all conflicts and especially remember those who lost their lives in those conflicts.

“Members of the community are welcome to attend our service at the Kwinana War Memorial and are also invited to lay a wreath or flowers during the wreath laying ceremony,” he said.

“Remembrance Day next year, 2018 will mark 100 years of the Armistice of WW1 with special commemoration already being planned.”
