Armistice Day 1918

11th November 2018

On this day, one hundred years ago, Private F.G. Turner from Inverell recorded the following brief entry in his diary whilst in France with the 33rd Battalion:-

Lovely day. Armistice signed - we got the day off and Brigade sports were on near Citerne so I went to them. Saw Stan Callinan. Went to Cooee Show at night in Hallencourt. 

Like hundreds of other Australian soldiers it was several months before Private Turner was able to return to Australia.
