Australians will soon pause to remember our fallen diggers and returned service men and women for Remembrance Day.
Today marks 99 years since the signing of the Armistice with Germany that brought an end to World War I.
More than one million Australians have served their country, with 102,000 losing their lives on the battlefields and during peacekeeping missions.
