Members of Manning Valley Pipes and Drums will commemorate 100 years since the signing of the First World War Armistice on November 11.
At exactly 5pm, the performers will play Battle’s O’er at Fotheringham Park, Taree, joining hundreds of others across Australia and around the world.
“We expect there will be four pipes and three drummers taking part in the commemoration at the war memorial,” group spokesperson, John Andrews explained.
“That’s quite enough to make a bit of noise.”
The commemoration has been coordinated by the College of Piping in Glasgow, with Pipe Bands Australia spreading the initiative around the country.
The 5pm performance will sync up with pipers playing at 6am in Britain, the exact time the Armistice was signed in Compiegne, France between the Allies and Germany in 1918.
“A number of our other group members are performing in different places, including one at Forster,” Mr Andrews continued.
“Anyone who wants to come along and join in the celebration is very welcome to do so.”
The Taree Remembrance Day service will be held at Club Taree on Sunday, November 11. Club Taree’s Paul Allan will preside over the ceremony, which will begin at 10.50am. The 100th anniversary of the formation of Taree RSL Sub-branch will be recognised in December.
