YESTERDAY marked the 94th anniversary of the "war to end all wars".
At the Remembrance Day service held by Mittagong RSL sub-branch, the fallen were honoured and remembered.
The service was attended by many, including the New Zealand, Australian and Malaysian Air force contingents along with about 35 veterans.
The service was led by Mittagong Sub Branch president Ross Spirou, who said the day brought back a lot of memories of friends lost in the war.
Year 12 Frensham student Hannah Buchman made an address in which she said we not only commemorated those who died on foreign soil, but also celebrated those who returned home.
"We promise that in years to come we will commemorate their valiant service and Remembrance Day will continue to serve as a reminder to us of the price paid for the freedom we as Australians are fortunate enough to enjoy. It was only out of love for their country that these soldiers accepted death," she said.
Year 6 Mittagong Public School student Annabel Trouncer also made an address, and presented a Bible owned by Private Jay Taylor.
Vietnam War veteran and secretary of Mittagong Sub Branch Stephen Spence said Remembrance Day provided an opportunity to remember those who served in all wars and those now serving.
