Remembrance Day: 100 years later, Australians commemorate that the weapons have fallen silent

The Australians will take a break on Sunday – at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month – to commemorate the silence of the cannons that fell silent 100 years ago to end the First World War.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison and opposition leader Bill Shorten will meet in front of the Australian War Memorial in Canberra Sunday morning.

The musicians John Schumann and Lee Kernaghan are expected at the national ceremony.

Veteran Minister Darren Chester will also be attending a service in Villers-Bretonneux, France.
