Remembering our Fallen – Remembrance Day

November 11, 2016

Remembrance Day has a special meaning for many people and this meaning isn’t lost on Fowler MP Chris Hayes who attended, and was represented at, local services.

"My grandfather, John Hayes, served in World War I in the Australian Light Horse and I still vividly remember the stories he shared."

"But it was the camaraderie he had with his fellow soldiers that has stayed with me the most."

"His mates became part of his family and Remembrance Day was a special day for him to honour them."

"It was great to see so many people of all ages take part in this year’s Remembrance Day."

"We should never forget the sacrifices our forebears have made so that we can all enjoy life as we know it. And we should pay honour to our current serving members who today continue to defend our rights, liberties and freedom."

"Peace should never be taken for granted," Chris Hayes said.
