Reminder for Remembrance Day Friday 11 November
Published: Wed 9 Nov 2011
The Australian War Memorial will host the national Remembrance Day Ceremony from 10.15am on Friday, 11 November.
Commencing at 10.15am, the national Remembrance Day ceremony includes a minute’s silence at 11am to remember the moment 93 years ago when the guns of the Western Front fell silent after more than four years of fighting. The ceremony is a special opportunity to reflect on the sacrifice of Australian servicemen and women on the anniversary of the end of the First World War.
Media should arrive by 10am for pre-set positions on the Parade Ground, adjacent to the Stone of Remembrance. Media are requested to be respectful of the ceremony, and remain still during the Last Post, Minute’s Silence and Rouse.
Pre-recorded and live interviews are available with Memorial historians and curators in the lead up to the ceremony. Historic photographs are also available for Remembrance Day features. To organise interviews or photographs please email firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday COB.
