Fitting backdrop for Two Wells Remembrance Day

Amongst a symphony of bird chatter, the annual Two Wells Remembrance Day service was held against the fitting backdrop of the peaceful Two Wells War Memorial Gardens on Saturday, November 11.

With roses in full bloom and bathed in warm spring sunshine, around 70 people gathered for the service to pay tribute to those soldiers lost serving our country.

Local RSL president, Tony Flaherty, led the brief but poignant service.

Poppies were handed out 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 followed by the Australian national anthem.

Mr Flaherty read the well-known and moving prayer of remembrance and thanked those in attendance for honouring, respecting and remembering Australian service men and women.

“We’re really proud of your attendance, of you all and for the fact you’ve all come to support Remembrance Day and honour those who fought for Australia, are still, and have died since,” he said.

After the service refreshments were served back at the RSL clubrooms, with people taking the opportunity to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and have a chat about their links to the armed forces and war history.
