Canowindra stops to remember our servicemen and women

"It's a time to reflect and honour," Canowindra RSL sub branch president Mike Harrison said in his opening remarks to the town's Remembrance Day service on Monday.

"It was 11am on November 11, 1918 when the guns fell silent as hostilities ceased on the western front," Mr Harrison said before those present including veterans, students from Canowindra's schools and members of the public.

"Today we are here to pay our respect to those young soldiers, Army, Navy and Air Force who paid the ultimate sacrifice and to the men and women who returned home to their country Australia.," he added.

Mr Harrison presented the Australian and Aboriginal flags to the three schools in appreciation of their participation in the service.

"We should always remember the men and women who served their country from the Boar War through to Afghanistan and also the Australian Defence Force that is serving our country in Australia today and overseas," Mr Harrison said.
