Remembrance Day

Nov 11, 2020 | News, Parliament

Today Rod rose to speak on Remembrance Day.
‘Today we remember the service members who have lost their lives protecting this great country of ours.
On the 11 November 1918 the guns on the western front fell silent after 4 years of war.
It also makes us reflect on past servicemen who were family members in particular for me it was my old man.
Remembrance day was always important to him, going to a march, catching up with his mates, lunch, the Premier would be pleased to know the old boy was known to get on the beers today! And late afternoon my brother or I would get the phone call from mum, go get your father and bring him home.
He was a member of the RSL from the time he immigrated to Australia in 1951 and this meant a lot to him in his later years.
Remembrance Day was a great day for these serviceman to get together, reflect and remember those who gave their loves in service to our country.
Today I will remember the sacrifices my father and his generations made.
Lest We Forget’
