A small crowd gathered at the Gunnedah cenotaph on Monday to mark the 101 years since the guns on the western front fell silent in World World I.
The ceremony was hosted by the Gunnedah RSL sub-branch and Gunnedah Shire Band's Amity Cleal played The Ode, The Last Post and The Rouse.
Students and staff from Gunnedah South Public School, Gunnedah Public School, St Mary's College and Gunnedah High School attended, along with community members.
The flags were raised by veterans Malcolm Robinson and John Atkin, and wreaths were laid by the schools, the RSl, Legacy, Gunnedah Shire Council, National Service Men, Gunnedah CWA, Gunnedah Red Cross and the ladies auxiliary.
The main address was delivered by Gunnedah Anglican Church minister David Piper who said after the war ended, memorials were constructed all over Australia, and this was telling.
"What a nation chooses to remember says a lot about who we are. It shows what we value," he said.
"We do not remember the war to glorify it, but because we value peace. It spurs us on to seek peace. We remember the fallen because we value every precious soul.
"We remember their bravery because we value the strength it takes to go into battle in the face of internal fears - for the sake of standing with others.
"We remember their mateship because we value real relationships where we help each other and put another first."
