Ky falls silent to re­mem­ber

Kyabram Free Press - - NEWS -

A CROWD gath­ered at the Re­mem­brance Day com­mem­o­ra­tions to re­mem­ber those who have served our coun­try.

At 11am on Novem­ber 11, Kyabram fell silent as the fire siren rang out to re­mind res­i­dents of the sac­ri­fice ser­vice­men and women have made for our coun­try.

Lead­ing the cer­e­mony, RSL Sub-branch pres­i­dent Graeme James said the day was about re­mem­ber­ing every­one who had fought for our coun­try.

‘‘Af­ter the speech Clive Toms gave at the Beer­sheba me­mo­rial the other week I thought it’d be great to be able to hear it again. But in­stead of get­ting a copy I thought why not get the man him­self up here to read it for us,’’ Mr James said.

‘‘It was a good turn out to the com­mem­o­ra­tions, while we don’t get the num­bers like we would for AN­ZAC Day, it was great to see such a turnout.’’
