    This service is in memory of the Victorian servicemen and women who have served overseas or in Australia in all wars, in ships or units of the Royal Australian Navy, the Australian Army, or the Royal Australian Air Force.

    In particular, we remember the service of men and women who served in units from World War I and World War II who once would have attended their annual Pilgrimage in this month, but due to the passage of time are no longer able to.

    In World War I, 89,000 Victorians served overseas. 19,000 made the supreme sacrifice.

    In World War II, 297,000 Victorians served overseas. 10,900 made the supreme sacrifice.

    We will remember them.

    The Australian-Maltese community holds its annual service of remembrance in April each year. This time marks the award of the George Cross to the island by King George VI of the United Kingdom in a letter dated 15 April 1942 so as to "bear witness to the heroism and devotion of its people" during the tremendous hardships they suffered in the early days of World War II.
