Tribute to past and present armed forces personnel

Against the backdrop of the almost-complete Afghanistan memorial and recently refurbished WW1 monument, Two Wells held its annual Remembrance Day service on Tuesday November 11.

The warm spring day saw around 60 people gather for the service and pay tribute to those soldiers who lost their lives fighting for our country.

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.

Members of the Two Wells Scout Group formed a guard of honour near the WW1 memorial monument as a minute silence was held following the playing of the Last Post.

After the service, a sausage sizzle was held 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.
