The Bribie Island RSL Sub-Branch Remembrance Day Service commemorating the 105th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice was held, as usual, on the grounds of the Bribie RSL. Morning showers and the threat of more rain did not affect the crowd numbers, which appeared to be normal. The Catafalque Party was provided by B Squadron, 12/16th Hunter Rivers Lancers. The Bribie Island Men’s Shed placed their “Ghost Soldiers” to form a guard of honour for the mounting of the Catafalque Party. The Banksia Beach State School provided the music for the service, plus the three young trumpeters who played the Last Post. The band from Banksia Beach State School performed the Australian and New Zealand National Anthems. The Bribie Island State School choir sang hymns.

The attached photographs show the Catafalque Party marching through the “Ghost Soldiers” guard and the two rows of “Ghost Soldiers” leading to the dais.
