Remembrance Day 2017: Remembering all our fallen soldiers

PEOPLE have headed to Remembrance Day services to pay their respects and reflect on the men and women who have fought for our country.

At Logan Village there was a brief respite from the rain as master of ceremonies John Leggatt led the service.

Among the attendees was Logan Village veteran Joseph Cramp, who turns 101 years old on November 30.

Mr Leggatt said it was ironic that November 11 was known as Remembrance Day but was forgotten by many.

The occasion commemorated at the 11th hour, of the 11th day of the 11th month is intended to remember those who lost their lives on the battlefield, particularly from World War I onwards.

Logan Village State School captains Nathaniel Dennis and Alysha Marris talked about what Remembrance Day meant to them and councillor Laurie Koranski read In Flanders Field.

Other services were held at Jimboomba and Greenbank.

The services were followed by get-togethers at RSL clubs.
