Memories for Remebrance Day
4BC Afternoons: With Remembrance Day upon us this Sunday, Moyd and Loretta share our listeners’ memories of loved ones who made a contribution. Listen now and join the conversation.
New app to remember Remembrance Day
The ritual of honouring Australia's war heroes is moving into the digital age, with a new app being launched to help young people remember Remembrance Day.
The Minute to Remember app will send out an SMS reminder just before 11am on Sunday to remind subscribers to observe the traditional minute's silence.
The app has been created for Defencecare, an RSL NSW charity that helps current and ex-service personnel and their families with a range of issues.
Defencecare CEO Robyn Collins says the number of war veterans is diminishing, but the importance of Remembrance Day and the minute's silence "continues to be a truly essential cultural element of being Australian".
"This digital solution is an exciting way to stay relevant, respectful and help the Defencecare community," she said.
The Minute to Remember campaign also allows people to donate by buying a virtual poppy, which is uploaded to their Facebook page.
RSL NSW President Don Rowe welcomed the new app, saying it would help the ongoing effort to support veterans.
"Defencecare makes a real difference to people's lives and for us, it is crucial to be able to continue our support."
