Remembrance Day – Hobart 2009

Well today was the 11th day of the 11th Month. So the children and I went into Hobart to share in the experience of the Remembrance Day Celebrations at the Hobart War Memorial.

Prior to the today, the children and I had talked about the meaning and importance of remembrance day and what it was all about. We talked about the opportunity for us to go to a service and for us to honour and pay our respects to those who had fought and died for us to have the freedom that we experience and enjoy even today.

Once we arrived at the war memorial we purchased ourselves a ‘Poppy’ each and wore them with pride. At the service their were local school children singing and also many political and important people in attendance, who all laid a wreath. Also many service men and women where also there and after the service was concluded we were able look at and take pictures of the wreaths, military people, horses and machinery.
