Kioloa War Memorial’s committee has called on residents to be part of a global project at this year’s Remembrance Day Service.
On November 11, it will be 100 years since the guns ceased firing for World War I. The Armistice of Compiègne – the place where it was signed – ended fighting on land, sea and air between Germany and the Allies.
The Kioloa War Memorial Committee will host a service at 11am and it will serve refreshments in the Community Centre after the service.
The College of Piping in Scotland has launched a project to have at least 1000 pipers around the globe, playing the well-known retreat march, When the Battle’s O’er.
Piper Ian Mason will play When the Battle’s O’er at 6am and during the service at 11am. The memorial committee invites all to attend both.
If you want to lay a wreath at the service you must arrive by 10.30am, the committee requests. To lay a wreath contact the secretary by November 10 on 0416 249 210 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
