A special moment of reflection on Remembrance Day

At 11am today, the city paused for a minute to honour the soldiers who died fighting to protect Australia, its allies and their freedoms.

The Governor attended the Remembrance Day commemorative ceremony held at the State War Memorial at Kings Park.

As part of the ceremony, the Governor was the first to lay a wreath on behalf of the people of Western Australia. The Ode was then read, before the Last Post and National Anthem were played.

The Governor is proud patron of the RSLWA.
