Remembrance Day 2017

Minister for Veterans’ Affairs Dan Tehan said Remembrance Day today was an opportunity for every Australian to reflect on the lives lost to war and the service and sacrifice of our defence personnel.

Mr Tehan will honour Australia’s service men and women at the Remembrance Day National Ceremony at the Australian War Memorial today.

“Remembrance Day marks the anniversary of the First World War Armistice in 1918 and is an important part of Australia’s history,” Mr Tehan said.
