Deniliquin RSL Sub-branch members Don Ward and Murry Druitt conducting the Remembrance Day ceremony on Sunday.
Locals stood together and remembered Australia’s soldiers at the Cressy St cenotaph on Sunday morning.
A crowd of about 100 people turned out for the event, and gathered in small groups in the shade around and behind the cenotaph.
Deniliquin Mayor Lindsay Renwick believes interest in Remembrance Day is growing.
‘‘We wouldn’t have had this crowd of people 10 years ago,’’ he said.
The half-hour service included an address from Deniliquin RSL Sub-branch senior vice president Murry Druitt, which included the reading of a speech originally given at the funeral of the unknown Australian soldier.
The address reminded the audience of the lessons learned from war, and the terrible price paid.
You could hear a pin drop during the minute’s silence, as locals showed deep respect for the meaning of the day.
There was also a prayer read by Salvation Army Captain David Day, and the playing of The Last Post. The poem In Flanders Fields was also read, and several wreaths laid.
