MEGA GALLERY: 50+ photos from Remembrance Day 2019

MANY gathered across the South Burnett yesterday to remember those who had fallen while serving their country.

Residents marked the 101st Armistice Day with services, parades and a moment of silence.

The South Burnett Times caught up with Wondai veteran Wally Knight who had a 'horror health scare' when he was ready to join his fellow soldiers.

On Remembrance Day, dedicated young people involved in the events gave veterans hope that the memory of the war will be kept alive as a reminder of the sacrifices made.

Murgon State High School's incoming school captains proudly played their part at the Murgon parade and Remembrance Day service.

Meanwhile, Kingaroy's past and present students united together to remember the fallen.

They dedicated a war memorial wall and welcomed veterans who were past students.

In the lead up to Remembrance Day, an interesting find in a potato patch was the beginning of a remarkable WW1 story.

Medals were reunited with Seth Bichard's family after going missing for a century.

South Burnett residents will have the opportunity to see the powerful artworks of the realities of war at the Kingaroy Art Gallery.

Recovering the Past shares artist Ian Alderman's photographs in the 25-piece exhibition.
