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.

This week's Last Post Service is in honour of Pearl Harbour, which took place on 7 December 1941. We acknowledge the impact this event had on America's decision to join the Second World War. The attack on Pearl Harbour signified the expanding conflict in the Pacific, leading America to stand alongside its allies in the fight for freedom.
