Remembrance Day: Two Wells

IMG_0670

A sunny spring day saw around 80 people attend the Remembrance Day service in Two Wells on Monday November 11.

Led by local RSL president, Tony Flaherty, poppies were handed out to those in attendance as wreaths were laid in honour of fallen Australians and in appreciation for those who are currently still serving.

Mr Flaherty said it was exciting to see the growth of awareness about the armed forces from members of the community and to see so many people getting involved in not just Remembrance Day but also the Anzac Day service and general RSL activities.

“The excitement at what is happening with our war memorial is building,” Mr Flaherty said.

“The upgrade is just about to start and will, when completed, be the only memorial of its type in Australia.”

Members of the Two Wells Scout Group formed a guard of honour near the war memorial monument as a minute silence was held after the playing of the Last Post.

Following the service, a sausage sizzle was held back at the RSL clubrooms, with many taking the opportunity to enjoy the family atmosphere and have a chat about their links to the armed forces and war history.
