RE­MEM­BRANCE DAY COM­MEM­O­RA­TION SER­VICES

Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine - - Community News -

The Hills District Re­mem­brance Day Com­mem­o­ra­tion Ser­vices will be held on Sun­day 11th Novem­ber, at 11AM & 5PM at the Gal­ston Ceno­taph, lo­cated next to the His­tory Cot­tage on Gal­ston Road.

It would be ap­pre­ci­ated if those at­tend­ing the 11AM ser­vice could be seated by 10.30AM. The ser­vice this year has a greater sig­nif­i­cance than nor­mal, as we will com­mem­o­rate the 100th An­niver­sary of the sign­ing of the Ar­mistice to bring World War 1 hos­til­i­ties to a close. John Gra­ham, a lo­cal bag­piper, will play a lament at an ap­pro­pri­ate point in the pro­ceed­ings at the 11AM ser­vice, and a tune called “The Bat­tle’s O’er” at 5.00PM at the Ceno­taph. Pipers the world over will ac­knowl­edge the 100th An­niver­sary by playing “The Bat­tle’s O’er” as close to the time of the sign­ing of the Ar­mistice as pos­si­ble, which was 5.00AM lo­cal Euro­pean time.

It would be great to see a good at­ten­dance at both these ser­vices to ac­knowl­edge the tremen­dous debt we owe to those who have served in the Armed Forces of our coun­try, many of whom made the supreme sac­ri­fice.
