Camden's 2019 Remembrance Day service pays respect to the fallen

The tolls of St John's bells were all that could be heard during a minute's silence at today's Remembrance Day service at Macarthur Park in Camden.

The somber service was attended by residents, officials, ex-servicemen and women and special guests.

The Camden RSL Sub-branch historian and treasurer gave a stirring speech about the history of Remembrance Day and what it meant to him.

He also spoke about some of the the brave local men who gave their lives fighting overseas during WWI and WWII.

School children and other attendees laid wreaths around the Macarthur Park War Memorial while a bagpipe was played.

A bugler from the Camden community band sounded The Last Post and the Reveille during the solemn memorial service.

This year's hymns and the national anthem were sung by Camden resident Sally Quinnell.

Camden RSL Sub-branch president Ian Richard-Evan led the formalities and gave a heartfelt thank you to all attendees.
