In November 2018, we commemorate the centenary of the Armistice that ended the First World War (1914-18).
A creative public program at the Australian War Memorial will combine public activities, displays, installations and events for the five week period from 5 October to Remembrance Day, on 11 November 2018.
The centrepiece to the commemorations will be the installation of 62,000 knitted red poppy flowers on the Memorial’s grounds. Each poppy represents an Australian life lost in the First World War. The names of those lost are individually listed on the Memorial’s Roll of Honour.
