Moree will fall silent on Monday as the community stops to pay tribute to those in the armed forces who have served this country, both in war and peace, over the past 130 years.

Every year on the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month, Australians take a moment to remember the men and women who fought, died and suffered during wars and armed conflicts over the past century.

This year marks 101 years since the historic treaty was signed to end 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.

Moree RSL sub-branch will be commemorating Remembrance Day 2019 with a service at the memorial window at Moree and District Services Club at 10.45am for a 10.50am start. All are welcome to attend the commemorative service.
