The Esperance community will gather at the town’s Returned and Services League Memorial Park on Sunday morning in remembrance of the soldiers who fought in World War I.
The service will kick off at 10.45am, with RSL Esperance sub branch president Shane Miller performing the opening address.
The Esperance Brass Band, the 503 Esperance Army Cadets, the community choir, Father Frank Roe and local singers will participate in the commemorations.
The 10th Light Horse Esperance Troop will also feature in the service.
The town will join the rest of the world in two minutes of silence at 11am.
Mr Miller said as well as the ceremony, which would finish with a luncheon at the Rotary Club with proceeds to be donated to the RSL, Walk of Remembrance banners displayed by the Shire of Esperance would pay special tribute to the local men who fought in the war.
He said while those in the know realised this year’s Remembrance Day events were special in that they marked 100 years since the World War I Armistice, not everyone would be aware of its significance.
He said he would be making reference to the 100 years in his address, in front of what he estimated would be a 250 to 300-strong crowd.
“I think it’s really important to really think about these anniversaries because these people fought for us, they fought for Australia in the Great War,” he said.
The Memorial Park carpark will be shut from 10.30am due to the presence of the 10th Light Horse Esperance Troop.
