On November 11, 1918, Armistice Day signalled the long-awaited end of hostilities in World War I The occasion evoked mixed emotions: joy at the end of hostilities interwoven with sadness for those who did not return and their sorrowing loved ones. We acknowledge this important event today as “Remembrance Day”. The Friends of ANZAC Cottage will be commemorating this significant day on Sunday, November 10 from 3pm to 6pm with a range of activities including a free poppy making workshop for children, a talk by archaeologist Sue Carter on battlefield artefacts and the presence of the wonderful 10 the Light Horse Rockingham Troop. The day will conclude with a moving Sunset Service at the Cottage beginning at 5:30pm. The Cottage is situated at 38 Kalgoorlie Street, Mount Hawthorn and entry is free with
afternoon tea available for a gold coin donation. For more information, please contact Anne by email:[email protected] or call 0411 44 55 82.
