REMEMBERING THE SACRIFICE: Mark Armstrong pays tribute to fallen soldiers during last year's Remembrance Day service.

THE Moree community will stop, pause and pay tribute to the men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our country this Sunday, on the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month.

This year is particularly poignant, marking the 100th anniversary of the armistice which ended World War I at 11am on November 11, 1918.

That moment became associated with the remembrance of those who had died in the war and after World War II, the name was changed to Remembrance Day. Each year Australians observe one minute silence in memory of those who died or suffered in all wars and armed conflicts.

Everyone is invited to attend Moree RSL sub-branch’s Remembrance Day service, which will be held at Anzac Centenary Park, Gosport Street at 10.45am for a 10.50am start.
