Join us at week's close to honour those who have served and sacrificed so that we may enjoy our lives of relative peace, comfort and freedom. 

The Last Post Service takes place every Sunday at 4.45pm on the Shrine's northern forecourt and includes bugle calls and piper, Shrine Guard in historic uniform, a wreath-laying, recital of the Ode and lowering of the flags. 

Each week we pause to remember a different event from Australia's military history. We remember the people who took part in those events, and the lives lost or forever changed. Visitors are welcome to lay a floral tribute at the Eternal Flame.

This week's service marks a turning point in Australia's involvement in the Middle East. On 18 June 2008, the final members of the ADF Overwatch Battle Group returned home from Iraq, signifying the conclusion of Australia's combat mission in that country. We honour all who served in Iraq, and their families who supported them throughout deployments.
