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 we commemorate the recognition of Australian bravery in Vietnam. On 30 September 1970, the United States Army awarded the Meritorious Unit Commendation to the Australian Army Training Team Vietnam (AATTV) in recognition of their outstanding service. This award highlights the significant contribution Australian personnel made in training and mentoring Vietnamese forces during the Vietnam War.
