Remembrance Day: Lest we forget

Also known as Veterans Day in the U.S., Remembrance Day was first held throughout the Commonwealth in 1919. It marks the armistice to end the First World War, which came into effect at 11 a.m. on Nov. 11, 1918.

Two minutes before the armistice went into effect, at 10:58 a.m. on Nov. 11, 1918, Pte. George Lawrence Price was felled by a bullet. Price would become the final Commonwealth soldier to be killed in the First World War.

This day is a day set aside to honour sacrifice. I ask you ALL to respect our veterans and our active combat troops, not just those who died in the First World War, but everyone of them who has fought for our safety and security, for our freedom and our liberty.

Thank you!
