AT 11AM on Saturday, November 11, the people of Australia, including Moree, stopped what they were doing and paused for a minute of silence to remember the sacrifice servicemen and women have made for our country.
About 50 people attended Saturday’s Remembrance Day service, which marked the 99th anniversary since the guns fell silent on the Western Front in 1918. at Moree Services Club.

Moree Caledonian Society Pipes and Drums pipers performed the lament during the wreath laying, while Moree and District Band and Moree Community Choir performed the three national anthems and ‘O God Our Help in Ages Past’.
