Remembrance day.
Danny Cassidy, assisted by Peter, Basil, Gordon, and Courtney, presented our annual Remembrance day program.
The program honors those who died or were casualties fighting in wars since the first world war.
Gordon spoke of how remembrance day came about and why we observe a minute's silence on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.
Courtney read a soldier's letter home, sent from the front in Europe in the first world war.
Danny recited two poems. "The band played Waltzing Matilda," commemorating the participation of the Australian, New Zealand Army Core at the battle of Gallipoli, the ANZACS.
Also, the participation of the Newfoundland Regiment in Gallipoli, noting their efforts in making the only progress on the beaches at Suvla Bay. A victory amidst a disaster.

 We observed a minute of silence while " The last post" played, ending with the playing of  "Rouse."
Here is the video of the meeting. Unfortunately, the recording stopped somewhat early, so I've had some work to put it together, causing the delay in sending the bulletin.    Danny
Gerd said that as it was Remembrance Day observance, he would forgo the Sergeant at Arms.
