Veterans and their loved ones will pause for a minute’s silence at Epping RSL on Remembrance Day to honour fallen soldiers.

The sub-branch will mark the 99th anniversary of Remembrance Day with a service at its Harvest Home Road base on Saturday, November 11, beginning at 10.30am.

The service will include the laying of wreaths and poppies, a minute’s silence at 11am and the playing of The Last Post by bugler Dennis Hayman.

Local students will visit the RSL earlier in the week to lay poppies and white crosses.

Craigieburn will mark the day with the first Remembrance Day service at the new war memorial at Craigieburn Anzac park at 11am.
