Armistice Day Centenary to be commemorated
The end of WWI came when Armistice was declared on the 11th hour, of the 11th day of the 11th month, in 1918. The war was to end all wars, but there was an uneasy peace that saw WWII begin in September 1939.
The Centenary of the Armistice is November next year, and the Wireless Institute of Australia will join the commemoration set to be marked in England and elsewhere.
The event co-ordinator is Fred Swainston VK3DAC VK4FE, who gained experience from leading the 8-month long ANZAC 100 campaign that involved the Australian states, and the territories of the VK0ANZAC Antarctic and VK9ANZAC Norfolk Island.
The first task is to request the permission of the Department of Veterans Affairs to use the word ANZAC for QSL purposes, plus liaison with similar commemorations overseas.
