Lest We Forget. Remembrance Day 2019

On 11 November 1918, the guns of the Western Front fell silent after four years of continuous warfare. With their armies retreating and close to collapse, German leaders signed an Armistice, bringing to an end the First World War. In the four years of the war more than 330,000 Australians had served overseas, and more than 60,000 of them passed away.

Each year on this day Australians and St Laurence's College observe one minute’s silence at 11am, in memory of those who died or suffered in all wars and armed conflicts.

Lest We Forget.
