Woodville Town Hall, Adelaide.

The 11th November is known as Remembrance Day, also known as Armistice Day. It is, of course, the anniversary of the end of World War I, and it is a day for remembering those who died in the wars.

In November 1997, then Australian Governor-General Sir William Deane formally proclaimed November 11 Remembrance Day and urged all Australians to observe one minute’s silence at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month each year to remember those who died or suffered for Australia’s cause in all wars and armed conflicts.

While Remembrance Day is thus observed in Australia, the better-known “remembrance” day in Australia (and New Zealand) is actually Anzac Day on April 25 each year.
