Twenty Fifth Remembrance Day Ceremony Will Be Held in Arena Thursday, November 11

National Remembrance Day, the 25th anniversary of Armistice Day, 1918 will be remembered in a ceremony under the auspices of Perth Veterans on Thursday, November 11 at 10:45 a.m. in the arena.

In addition to those who gave their lives in the Great War, the service this year will be in memory of those who have made the supreme sacrifice in the present war.  Wreaths will be deposited and the service will be of remembrance.  It is understood that business houses will observe two minutes of silence and the Citizens Band, Veterans and local guards company will be given time off to participate in the ceremony. 

Ex-servicemen and servicemen of the town and district are asked to meet at the Armory before the service on the 11th.  The annual dinner will be held in the evening at 5:30 when all veterans as well as active servicemen are asked to attend.

O valiant hearts who to your glory came

Through dust of conflict and through battle flame

Tranquil you lie, your knightly virtue proved

Your memory hallowed in the land you loved.

Proudly you gathered rank on rank, to war

As who had heard God’s message from afar

All you had hoped for, all you had you gave

To save mankind—yourself you scorned to save.

Present War—Died or Presumed to Have Died
