Crowds gathered on the streets throughout Australia, triumphant cheers and songs of victory rang throughout the cities. It was Monday, the 11th of November 1918, news had just arrived; the four-year war was finally at an end, and armistice had been reached. Despite these celebrations, the devasting toll of World War 1 loomed over Australia and its allies for many years to come. Over 100 years later, we remember them.

Remembrance Day gives Australians an opportunity to pause and pay tribute to the countless men and women who have served and who are currently serving, and to those who sacrificed all for their country.

The red poppy is a symbol of remembrance, which grew in abundance in the fields of Gallipoli. In the wake of brutality and loss, this small red flower blossomed. 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 the 3rd, 4th, 5th and 10th of November. Merchandise will also be available for purchase from the club reception.

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 Friday 11th November in the Pandanus Room, we ask that you arrive at 10.30am for a 10.45am start. If you would like to lay a wreath, please email [email protected] for your inclusion in our ceremony.

We Will Remember Them. Lest We Forget.
