Shrine Monthly Remembrance Service - August

A commemorative broadcast to remember those who no longer hold their annual service.

Sanctuary, Shrine of Remembrance, Birdwood Avenue, Melbourne, VIC 3001
Online event

Due to COVID-19 restrictions we are unable to hold a live service. While we cannot join together to give remembrance, a commemorative broadcast will honour all those who once would have made their pilgrimage to the Shrine in August.

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.
