ON the eleventh hour, of the eleventh day, in the eleventh month, members of Ellenbrook RSL gathered in front of the Ellenbrook community library on Main Street to honour the defence force personnel, peacekeepers, volunteers and service animals that have served Australia in times of need.
Ellenbrook RSL sub-branch president Stephen O’Neil said that all attendees bowed their heads and held a minute silence to honour, respect and remember those who served.
“We respect and honour those women and men and animals that continue this fine Australian tradition of ‘lending a hand’ when required,” he said.
“Those that have given their lives to help defend our own homes in our nation Australia and also to assist other nations in times of need to improve their way of life.”
Remembrance Day marks the end of hostilities in World War I in 1918. This year marks 104 years since the end of the conflict.
