Upcoming Last Post Ceremonies

 

Our daily Last Post Ceremony has been suspended until further notice

As a result of the latest national health advice, the Memorial has paused all public programs including the daily Last Post Ceremony and online live stream from Tuesday, 24 March 2020 until further notice.

During these difficult times it is important that we continue to remember those Australians on the Roll of Honour and share their stories. Whilst we hope to have a revised format back online in the near future, now each day we will share one of the stories from our Last Post Ceremony archive. Follow #LPCarchive on Facebook and Twitter daily at 4.55pm.

We’ll update you on this through social media and at www.awm.gov.au


The names listed below are those whose stories are told at the daily Last Post Ceremony at the Memorial.

The Last Post Ceremony is proudly supported by the RSL & Services Clubs Association, RSL Victoria, and RSL Queensland.

Each evening a Roll of Honour story is shared

Note: The Memorial reserves the right to make changes to this schedule at any time. If you plan on attending a particular ceremony, please contact the Last Post Ceremony team before making arrangements to avoid disappointment.
