MICK Farrell will be guest speaker at tomorrow’s Remembrance Day service at the Cenotaph in Coffs Harbour.

A veteran of campaigns in Malaya and Borneo as well as two tours of duty in Vietnam said he would be speaking about the origins of Remembrance Day in 1919 and ’those we should remember – people in all conflicts, who are just as important as those in World War I’.

As well as those gathered at the Cenotaph at 11am tomorrow, November 11, people in offices, homes and on worksites around the nation will observe a minute’s silence to recall those touched by war, including the more than 102,000 Australians who have lost their lives in wars, conflicts and peace operations during the past century.

Tomorrow’s other special guest will be former Army nurse Trudy Miosge, who served in Korea. Remembrance Day this year marks the 60th anniversary of the beginning of the Korean War, in which more than 17,000 Australian servicemen and women served.
