They went with songs to the battle, they were young.Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow.They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,They fell with their faces to the foe. They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning,We will remember them.

Remembrance day isn't just about the diggers - in addition to commemorating the end of hostilies during WW1, it's about paying respect to all of those who made sacrifices during the numerous armed conflicts throughout the modern era.

So thanks to everyone who's sacrificed something during war time over the years - civlians, armed forces personnel, everyone.

Some sobering stats..

Australia with a population of just 5 million people sent 330,000 troops overseas. 60,00 of these were killed. 160,000 were wounded.

Tough fight.

Lest we forget.

Lest we forget.

Its a shame that alot of schools and businesses, including mine, don't make the effort for a minutes silence.

We had "For The Fallen" recited over the PA, which was good. I had my area doing a minutes silence anyways.
