Remembrance Day Services 2016

Member for North Sydney Trent Zimmerman has encouraged the community to honour Remembrance Day and remember every Australian who has made the ultimate sacrifice in defence of our nation.

“Remembrance Day on November 11 marks 98 years since the Armistice that ended the First World War,” Mr Zimmerman said.

“I encourage everyone to pause for one minute’s silence at 11am and to wear a red poppy in memory of our servicemen and women who have lost their lives fighting for our freedom in both World Wars and in all theatres of war and conflict.

“On Remembrance Day we honour more than 102,000 Australians who have died serving our country.

“It is important we keep their memory alive and educate the next generation about their service and sacrifice.”

“Our RSL Sub Branches are holding services across the North Sydney electorate from 10:30am onwards and I encourage local residents to attend,” Mr Zimmerman said.
