Remembering our ANZAC'S

TOMORROW marks the 99 year anniversary of the ceasefire which ended the fighting in World War One.

Dalby residents will be at the cenotaph tomorrow morning at 11am, when many Australians stop for a minutes silence to remember those who died for the the freedoms enjoyed in our country.

The importance of the Anzac's has not been lost since World War One, with many anniversaries commemorated.

Recently, the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Beersheba was held, which was an important victory for the Allies.

Tomorrow there will be a service held in Dalby at the cenotaph on Patrick St, beginning at 10.30am which is open to the public to attend.

President of the Dalby RSL Sub-branch, Graham Coles, said it was an important day for not just members of the RSL, but for the wider community as well.

"(Remembrance Day) is for all of those who have served and fought for Australia in all of the wars and lost their lives,” Mr Coles said.

"The day allows people to show their respect and it is for the younger generations, to teach them about the history of Australia.”

As a veteran of the Vietnam War, the day allows Mr Coles to think of many past friends.

"For myself it allows me to remember some of the blokes I served with who lost their lives,” he said.

"What we mainly get out of going to the cenotaph is that we can pay our respects to many lost friends.”

Mr Coles said he hoped as many people as possible would attend to show their respect and support for fallen soldiers.
