100th an­niver­sary of the end of World War I is a time for deep re­flec­tion

The Weekend Australian - - COMMENTARY -

The cen­te­nary mark­ing the an­niver­sary of the mo­ment the guns fell silent in Eu­rope on No­vem­ber 11, 1918, is a day for deep re­flec­tion and in­tense grat­i­tude.

A young Aus­tralia took part in the bat­tle that fi­nally broke the Hin­den­burg line, per­formed with amaz­ing courage and re­silience at Villers Bret­ton­neux and paid a huge price at Fromelles and Pass­chen­daele.

On Re­mem­brance Day, all Aus­tralians should re­mem­ber those who served the na­tion in all con­flicts and par­tic­u­larly those who paid the ul­ti­mate price. Lest we for­get. Peter Cur­tis, Wer­ribee South, Vic
