Region ready for Remembrance Day


The region will pause for a minute of silence to commemorate Remembrance Day on Saturday, in recognition of Australia’s servicemen and women. 

While Saturday marks the 105th anniversary of the end of World War One, commemorations will also acknowledge those who died in the line of duty in other wars and conflicts.

The Remembrance Day services, organised by the Returned and Services League, RSL, sub-branches, will allow Australians to honour veterans and those currently serving.

Kilmore Wallan RSL sub-branch will conduct two services, one at the Kilmore cenotaph at Hudson Park in Kilmore and another at Hadfield Park in Wallan, both commencing at 10.30am.

Romsey Lancefield RSL sub-branch will also host a service at 11am at the Lancefield cenotaph on High Street, Lancefield.

Broadford RSL sub-branch will host its service at Memorial Park at High Street, Broadford, commencing at 10.50am. Refreshments will be served at the back deck of the RSL at 27 Murchison St after the service should people wish to attend.

Seymour RSL sub-branch will host a service at the Seymour District Memorial Hospital gates at Brettoneux Street at 10.30am.
