#1MS (1 Minute's Silence)

In the lead-up to Remembrance Day, Australians are being encouraged to take a moment to reflect on who they will be thinking about during the minute's silence at 11am on 11 November and share it using the hashtag, #1MS.

Remembrance Day is special to Australians, young and old, for many different reasons and sharing the stories is incredibly important and powerful.

As part of promoting #1MS, Minister for Veterans' Affairs and Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for the Centenary of ANZAC, Darren Chester, joined well-known Australians in expressing why they stop for a minute, including Cate and Bronte Campbell, Johnathan Thurston, Dan Sultan, Les Hill, Curtis McGrath and Bree Bailie, a current serving member of the Australian Defence Force.
