Chair of the Anzac Centenary Advisory Board, Air Chief Marshal Angus Houston, AC, AFC (Ret’d)
We want to ensure that the spirit, memories and commemoration of the recent Albany Convoy Commemorative Event (ACCE) is captured and shared with people around the world for many years to come.
If you attended and have a photo of what it was like to be there and what the commemorations meant to you, please upload it to the official Anzac Centenary Photo App.
The app is a place where you can upload photos, share memories and commemorative experiences and contribute to a lasting visual record of how Australia commemorated 100 years of service and sacrifice. The app can be found at – https://spirit.anzaccentenary.gov.au/
Lest we forget.
This Remembrance Day, Tuesday 11 November, marks ninety six years since the Armistice that ended fighting in the First World War came into effect
Australians across the nation and around the world will pause in silence to remember a century of service and sacrifice and pay special tribute to the more than 102,000 Australians who have lost their lives in war, in conflict and on peacekeeping operations.
In the lead up to Remembrance Day, the Returned and Services League (RSL) have launched their annual Poppy Day Appeal. The money raised helps provide assistance and services to current and former serving members of the Australian Defence Force and their families.
All Australians are encouraged to wear a red poppy or attend their local commemorations.
