ON November 11, 1918, the guns of the Western Front fell silent after four years of war.

As the German army began to collapse and retreat from warfare, their leaders signed an Armistice, bringing an end to the First World War.

A century on, the community will come together to pay their respects at the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month for a very special Remembrance Day this Sunday.

Millions of people across the country will attend Remembrance Day services to honour those brave men who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

Ipswich RSL Sub Branch president Rob Wadley is once again proud to lead his branch during this sombre day.

"If it wasn't for what our fore bearers did to represent our country, we wouldn't live in a free country,” he said.

"As an ex-service man myself, it is a real honour to represent our community and our veterans, past, present and future, on this very special day.”
