Returned Services League Memorial Rose GardenPrint Page Print this page

A rose garden commemorates those who served in World War One and the signing of the Armistice on the 11th November 1918.

Armistice Day is celebrated every year on 11 November to commemorate the armistice signed between the Allies of World War One and Germany at Compiègne, France, for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front.  The cesseation took effect at eleven o'clock in the morning—the "eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month" of 1918. While this official date to mark the end of the war reflects the ceasefire on the Western Front, hostilities continued in other regions, especially across the former Russian Empire and in parts of the old Ottoman Empire.
