( Pasban ) Sydney: The sails of the Sydney Opera House lits up with the poppies on the remembrance day at dawn on Wednesday as Australia marked the 102nd anniversary of Remembrance Day.
As the sun rose on Wednesday in Sydney, a lone bugler played the Last Post to remember the end of World War I and to pay tribute to those who lost their lives during performing their duty.
All the guns fell silent at 11 a.m. on November 11, 1918 after more than four years of brutal war claiming millions of lives worldwide. Once the war was over, the beautiful poppy was one of the few plants to grow on the barren battlefields which destroyed by the heavy arms and amunitions, and the flower has become a symbol for remembering those who died in that war.
In Canberra, Prime Minister of Australia Scott Morrison laid a wreath at a Remembrance Day service in Canberra.
More than 60,000 Australian souls lost their lives and more than 150,000 were injured, taken prisoner or gassed during WW1, says the Australian War Memorial on Wednesday at the occasion of Remembrance Day in Sydney Australia.
