Sacrifices honoured on Remembrance Day | PHOTOS

Ceduna hosted its annual Remembrance Day service on Monday to commemorate 101 years since the end of World War I.

The service, conducted at the Soldiers Memorial Park, was also an opportunity to remember the sacrifices of men and women in all wars and was led by Pastor Allan Wain.

He said that while the centenary of the end of World War I had passed, the day was still a chance to honour those who made the "ultimate sacrifice for their country".

Wreaths were laid by Brenton Bergmann and Jill Stockham on behalf of the Ceduna RSL sub branch, as well as mayor Perry Will and Crossways Lutheran School students Sarah Steeles, Jesse Steeles, Shontayah McIllwraith and Emilea Willis.

The service fell silent at 11am to remember the moment that the fighting stopped.

After the Last Post the crowd in attendance sang a rousing rendition of the national anthem to close the service.

Many of those present then enjoyed refreshments in the RSL clubrooms, where World War II veteran Melville Dawes received RSL life membership, while his wife Mary received a certificate of appreciation.
