BATHURST will commemorate the 101st anniversary of Remembrance Day with a short service on Monday morning.
Bathurst RSL Sub Branch has again organised the commemoration, which starts at 10.30am at the War Memorial Carillon on King's Parade.
Remembrance Day, at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, marks the signing of the armistice in 1918 that brought an end to fighting on the Western Front.

It came after four years of continuous fighting and thousands of young lives lost.
Bathurst organisers are expecting a much smaller crowd this year compared to the thousands who turned out last year to mark the 100th anniversary of Remembrance Day.
But tradition holds that even those who are not at the Carillon should stop and stand for a minute's silence at 11am to honour the sacrifice of the fallen.
