USE THIS ONEDefence joins all Australians on Remembrance Day to honour those who have given their life in service to our nation on operations for more than a century. The Chief of the Defence Force General Angus Campbell, AO, DSC, attended the National Ceremony at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra and reflected on the significance of Remembrance Day.

“On November 11, we pause to reflect on the legacy of the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our nation,” Campbell said.“In commemorating those who have come before us, we honour their contribution to our defence force and continue to draw on their example in challenging times.”

Many servicemen and women are currently deployed on Australian Defence Force operations around the world, actively defending Australia and its national interests, and providing assistance domestically to support the Whole-of-Government effort to address the impact of COVID-19.

Minister of Defence Linda Reynolds said “today, on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, we pause to remember and honour those who have given their lives for our nation. One year after the guns fell silent on the Western Front, allied countries first came together to honour the courage and sacrifice of their World War One fallen. For more than 100 years, Australians have come together to pay their respects to those who fought hard and died to achieve a peaceful, prosperous future. Today, as we honour their sacrifice, we also acknowledge and thank the more than 3,000 servicemen and women who are currently deployed on Australian Defence Force operations overseas, as well as those serving at home, supporting the Federal Government’s response to COVID-19. Today, I encourage all Australians to share one minute’s silence in memory of the more than 102,000 Australian men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Lest we forget.”
