Remembrance Day will be observed this year on Friday, 11th November, 2005, and arrangements are being made for a Commemoration Service at the Cenotaph, Martin Place, commencing at 10:15 a.m. The Premier has approved of ex-service men and women in the Government Services, who may be working that day, being allowed sufficient time off to attend the Service wherever practicable, subject to agencies' convenience.
To mark this occasion, it is requested that one minute's silence be observed from 11:00 a.m. to 11:01 a.m. on Friday, 11th November, 2005. It is hoped that, as far as possible, this period of silence will also be observed in all premises of Departments and Agencies.
Please bring this matter to the attention of your Department and any sub Agencies or Authorities coming within, or associated with, your administration.
