Join Us For The Centenary of Armistice Commemoration 2018
One hundred years ago, on 11 November 1918, World War 1 came to an end with the signing of the Armistice at Compiègne, France.
Almost 62,000 Australians died fighting in service of our nation and a further 82,000 were wounded in battle.
To mark the 100thanniversary of the signing of the WW1 Armistice, the Air Force Association will hold a public torchlight commemoration on 4th November to honour and give thanks to those brave men and women who served and paid the ultimate sacrifice and help shape the world in which we live today.
