Remember to Remember, Remembrance Day November 11

Remember to remember

The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month the moment the guns fell silent on the Western Front after World War I is a time for us to pause and remember those who served and sacrificed in all wars and conflicts.

Busy lives and competing priorities mean that sometimes that moment passes by without recognition.

RSL is asking all Australians to Remember to Remember to commit to pausing for just one minute to remember those who gave their lives in service to their country, those who returned home injured or ill, and those who bravely serve our country today.

It’s just one minute, but it means so much to our veterans.

Remember to wear a poppy and donate

Look out for local fundraising efforts and wear a poppy to demonstrate your support for veterans and their families this Remembrance Day. Fundraisers will bare the official insignia, shown below, of Remembrance Day 2021.

If you are unable to attend a live event, you’re welcome to make a donation online.

 

Commemoration Event Details – November 11, at 11am

The official New South Wales Remembrance Day Service will be livestreamed from the Cenotaph at Martin Place, Sydney by the Department of Premier and Cabinet and RSL NSW. Find more Remembrance Day Service details here.

RSL NSW sub-Branches will host COVID-safe commemorations in communities across NSW, in accordance with current NSW Health guidelines. For more information about local Remembrance Day Services, please contact your RSL sub-Branch.

The Department of Veterans’ Affairs has released a Remembrance Day ‘Kitbag’ with resources for hosting a commemorative event which can be downloaded here.
