Ceduna hosts Remembrance Day service

CEDUNA hosted a Remembrance Day service at the Ceduna Soldiers Memorial Park today.

Around 100 people were in attendance for the 11am service, presided by Pastor Allan Wain.

Students from both Ceduna Area School and Crossways Lutheran School were present for the service, as was Member for Flinders Peter Treloar.

The Park fell silent at 11am, the moment in 1918 when the guns of the Western Front stopped firing following more than four years of continuous warfare as an armistice was reached, marking the end of World War I.

Veteran Brenton Bergmann also spoke during the service, which remembered those who served and fell for their country in subsequent wars over the past century.

Following the service, patrons were invited back to the RSL hall for morning tea and refreshments.
