A good-sized crowd turned out to the Echuca ceremony to remember those who fought in all wars.

The ceremony held special significance this year with the dedication and unveiling of a new war plaque at the Echuca cenotaph to recognise those who went missing in action during the Korean War.
The plaque was dedicated by Padre Ron Wood before Echuca RSL Sub-branch president and Korean War veteran Jim Molyneaux officially unveiled it in front of a background of salutes from members of the HMAS Cerberus navy base.
In Moama, a small crowd of veterans and others gathered to pay tribute to the fallen at a Remembrance Day ceremony at the war memorial.
Wreath laying by veteran groups, schools and other community groups took place at both services, as well as at many other towns throughout the district as residents paused in a mark of respect for the day.
