Cloncurry commemorated the 101th Remembrance Day with pride this week.
At the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918, soldiers in the First World War laid down their arms, and the sacrifice of those who died and those who survived were recalled in the service at the Cloncurry Cenotaph over a century later.
Wreaths were laid by RSL Queensland, RSL Cloncurry Sub-branch, Australian Defence Force, Cloncurry Shire Council, police, ambos and firies, the two schools and members of the public.
Clconurry scouts formed the catalfaque party with the prayer by Fr Mick Lowcock and an address by Beau Whitney and Mayor Greg Campbell.
Chris Begley read the ode.
New RSL sub-branch president David Bezuidenhout led the service.
The Cloncurry RSL Sub-branch thanked everyone that came out in the heat.
"It is always heartwarming to see these events attended by young people. Thanks to Cloncurry State School, St Joseph's School Cloncurry and the Cloncurry Scouts".
