    The Shrine Monthly Remembrance Service honours Victorian servicemen and women from all branches of the Armed Forces. In particular, we remember Victorians who served during the First and Second World Wars, who once would have attended their annual pilgrimage in this month, but due to the passage of time are no longer able to.

    In the First World War 89,000 Victorians served overseas. 19,000 made the supreme sacrifice.
    In the Second World War 297,000 Victorians served overseas. 10,900 made the supreme sacrifice.

    We will remember them.

    Between July and October 1940 as a prelude to a German seaborne invasion of Britain, the German air force mounted daily attacks on British airfields, radar stations and cities, competing for air superiority and mass civilian damage (The Blitz). Pilots from many countries fought in the battle, with 35 Australians among them, of which 10 were killed in action.
