Remembrance Day 2018 | Full list of Gold Coast and Tweed services

AUSTRALIANS will this morning pause for a minute’s silence, to mark 100 years since the guns fell silent, signalling the end of World War One.

Of the 330,000 Australian men who were sent to the battlefields, more than 60,000 didn’t return home.

At the time, the four-year conflict was believed to be the war to end all wars.

You can pay your respects at services across the GOLD COAST and TWEED this morning.

During the Tweed Heads service, 20 men from the Sub-Branch and local Army Reserve Unit will be dressed in Allied and German uniforms to create a moving re-enactment of the end of the Great War.

Their costumes and military equipment will be both genuine and reproductions from the era and audio and special effects will add to the authenticity of the presentation.

Following the laying of the wreaths, women dressed as nurses will present white doves to be released by the Allied and German ‘soldiers’.
