ONE of the closest living descendants of a local World War One serviceman attended the Gawler Remembrance Day service to honour the memory of his father.
THE Gawler community reflected on the sacrifices made by local service men and women, and other Australians, in World War One at a special Remembrance Day service at Pioneer Park on Sunday morning.
THE major benefactor of the new Pioneer Park war memorial gave an impassioned Remembrance Day address reflecting on the meaning and “powerful symbolism” of the sculpture, amid significant debate within the community regarding it.
NEW kitchen and a display of World War One memorabilia is set to be built at the Tanunda RSL to mark the centenary of the armistice of World War One.
THE long-awaited Pioneer Park War Memorial will be officially dedicated at Gawler’s Armistice Centenary service this Sunday, after being installed earlier this week.
FREELING will take part in a synchronised global commemoration marking the signing of the Armistice that ended World War One, by including a bagpipe performance of ‘The Battle’s O’er’ in its Remembrance Day service.
THIS Remembrance Day, Gawler historian Rob Richter is ensuring the memory of his late grandfather, Corporal Henry Thomas (Tom) Mackereth, as well as those of all Australians who served in all wars, lives on.
ARMISTICE 1918, November 11. We can only imagine what that moment was like when the announcement came.
