A solemn minute to remember our fallen Diggers

"At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them."

With these words, those Diggers who fought in wars to allow the current generations the freedoms we enjoy were remembered.

A healthy crowd paid their respects at Grafton's Memorial Park with the playing of the Last Post and a minute's silence to mark Remembrance day.

It's been 95 years since World war I came to an end at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.

Despite the passing of time, today's mark of respect shows the battles fought so many years ago still evoke raw emotions as if the battles were waged only recently.

From the impressive youth who formed the Catafalque Party to the flowering Flanders Poppys planted in Memorial Park earlier this year, it was clear to see the Diggers will be remembered for many years to come.
