Remembrance Day 2015 “Lest We Forget”

Today I commemorated Remembrance Day with the City of South Perth and the Sub-Branch of the Returned and Services League in the City’s Memorial Gardens in South Perth.

I was honoured to lay a wreath to honour the many lives lost in battle and pay tribute to all Australians who have served our great nation.

Thank you to the City, Mayor Sue Doherty, MC Kevin Trent, the St Colomba Primary School singers and all others involved for such a heartfelt service

Today I commemorated Remembrance Day with the City of South Perth and the Sub-Branch of the Returned and Services League  in the City’s Memorial Gardens in South Perth.

The service marked the 95th anniversary of the cessation of hostilities in the Great War of 1914 -1918 and included the traditional wreath laying, flag raising, The Last Post bugle call, the Rouse and a special fly-over by the RAAF.

Thank you to the City, Mayor Sue Doherty, Councillor and MC Kevin Trent, the Wesley College musicians and all others involved for such a heartfelt service.
