Honour and Remember
The Remembrance Day Ceremony has played a major role in Remembrance since 1931. That year, the federal parliament adopted an act to amend the Armistice Day Act, providing that the day should be observed on 11 November and that the day should be known as Remembrance Day. Every year, at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, we gather to stand in honour of all who have fallen. Together, we observe a moment of silence to mark the sacrifice of the many who have fallen in the service of their country, and to acknowledge the courage of those who still serve.
