Remembrance Day (11 November) is a very important occasion for all Australians. It holds special significance for the generation who endured the First World War, particularly our veterans and for those who’s loved ones never returned.

At the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, as a nation we pause for silent reflection and remembrance in honour of those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the defence of their country and to preserve the freedoms we now enjoy.

Please join members of Stephens Sub Branch RSL to reflect on the service and sacrifice of our veterans and to take a moment to observe two minutes silence at 11 am on 11 November, in memory of those who died or suffered in all wars and armed conflicts.
