FROM WYNNUM RSL
November 11th, 1918 saw the end of four years of conflict. It was the end of World War 1.
The shadow cast over the allied forces would stand for decades to come. Over 60,000 Australians lost their lives during this battle. More than 100 years have since passed, yet their legacy burns on.
Remembrance Day gives Australians an opportunity to pause and pay tribute to the countless men and women who have served and are currently serving, and to those who sacrificed all for their country.
At 11.00am, we ask that you observe one minute’s silence, to reflect on the comradery, bravery and mateship demonstrated by our troops.
The Wynnum RSL Club will be holding a service and wreath laying ceremony on Thursday 11th November in the Pandanus Room; we ask that you arrive at 10.30am for a 10.45am start.
The red poppy is a symbol of remembrance, which grew in abundance in the fields of Gallipoli. In the wake of brutality and loss, blossomed the small red flower; a symbol now synonymous with our fallen troops, from the World Wars to Peace Keeping missions. A sign, that we will not forget them.
If you’re unable to join us at the service, please look at purchasing a poppy. Our Women’s Auxiliary will be selling poppies and other merchandise outside Coles Wynnum Central on 4th, 5th and 6th of November, merchandise will also be available for purchase from the club reception.
If you would like to lay a wreath, please email [email protected] for your inclusion in our ceremony.
We Will Remember Them.
