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.

Each Sunday we pause to remember a different event from Australia's military history. We remember the men and women who took part in those events, and the lives lost or forever changed.

Today we remember the 70th anniversary of the end of open warfare during the Korean War. On 27 July 1953, an armistice was declared in the war between North and South Korea, bringing an end to open conflict. Over 17,000 Australians served in the Korean War. Over 1,200 were wounded, 29 taken prisoner and 340 killed.

Shrine Representative:

  • Shrine Governor Air Commodore Rowan Story AM RFD (Retd)
