Armistice Day

We have a very special Armistice Day service on the Map of Australia, observing the two minutes silence at 11 o’clock.  The service was held by Rev Bill Smith along with Lieutenant James Davis, Australian Army and included readings by RAF and RAAF personnel along with some of our volunteers.  It was a very moving and poignant service.


Putting up the flagpole


Following a very generous donation by a local resident, our brand new flagpole was put up ready for Armistice Day.  We had already concreted in the base, so with the light fast fading on a dull November afternoon, we took the flagpole up to the top of the downs and then set it in place – that was the easy bit.  Working out how to hoist the flag was another matter!
