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.
While our doors are temporarily closed we will continue to honour the service and sacrifice of hundreds of thousands of Victorians.
Our services are streamed via Facebook, but you do not need to be a member to view.
