Centenary of Armistice
Date
11 November 2018, 10:30am - 11:30am
Location
Memorial Park, Palmerston

At 11.00am on November 11, many people across the world stop to remember the end of World War 1 and the service of armed forces everywhere.

"The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” is commemorated as the Anniversary of Armistice, and in 2018 it is especially significant as this year marks one hundred years since the end of that war. 

Join us to commemorate the Centenary of Armistice with a Remembrance Day Ceremony at Memorial Park (adjacent Council's main car park) on Sunday 11 November. 

The event includes a free BBQ and the unveiling of a mural specifically designed to commemorate the Centenary of Armistice.

For something special, at 3.30pm, simultaneously with pipe bands from all around Australia, the NT Pipe Band will play ‘The Battle’s O’er’, a tune composed a century ago to honour those who served.

A temporary Memorial Poppy Wall is currently installed in the park, and residents are encouraged to make and place hand-crafted poppies into the growing community memorial. A variety of beautiful poppies, from fabric to ceramic, are beginning to fill the wall.

This event is brought to the community by the City of Palmerston, Palmerston RSL and the Northern Territory Government.
