Event Overview: Commemorating Remembrance Day

On the 11th hour, the 11th day of the 11th month, Australian’s pause to remember our fallen servicemen and women and commemorate their sacrifice for our country.

Remembrance Day in Australia is when a minute’s silence is held at 11.00am to commemorate November 11, 1918 when WW1 hostilities ceased on the Western Front in Europe – Armistice Day. After WW2 the Australian & British governments re-named it Remembrance Day and the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month has taken on a tradition in the ensuing years where we remember all those who have died in war.

Every year at the Australian National Maritime Museum we host a traditional Remembrance Day ceremony, with the significant story of the MV Krait , the men in the Z Special Force and Operation Jaywick providing a focal point.

As school students play an important role in our ceremony, we in conjunction with Dartconnections are offering schools the opportunity to view our 2015 Remembrance Day Ceremony through video conferencing and YouTube live stream

A follow up session with World War 11 Valor in the Pacific National Monument (Arizona) and students from the USA will be held on Friday 13th November at 9.30 am
