Dubbo RSL sub-branch wants the city to be silent at 11am on Sunday, like the guns on the Western Front when World War 1 ended.
November 11 marks the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice after four years of bloody conflict which claimed 60,000 Australian lives including 256 servicemen and women from Dubbo.
The centenary will be a focus of the Remembrance Day service at the cenotaph in Victoria Park on Sunday.
But 10-year president of the sub-branch and Dubbo’s 2018 Citizen of the Year, Tom Gray, is reminding the community that Remembrance Day honours "fallen comrades in all wars and armed conflicts”.
“I would encourage everyone to come to the service,” he said. “But if you can’t please observe a minute of silence at 11am.”
Dubbo and District Pipe band will lead veterans along Memorial Drive and around the cenotaph in time for the minute of silence at 11am.
People planning to attend the service should be at the cenotaph by 10.30am.
Darling Street between Wingewarra and Talbragar streets will be closed at 10.15am and reopened at the end of the 20-minute service.
Dubbo mayor Ben Shields will speak to the crowd along with Mr Gray who will also deliver the Ode.
The service will include the playing of The Last Post, laying of wreaths and the presentation of awards to school children who have taken part in the Australia My Country competition.
A Remembrance Day service will be held at the cenotaph in Wellington’s Cameron Park from 10.20 am.
The Eumungerie/Coboco ceremony will be held at the cenotaph in Eumungerie from 10.45 am with Cr Greg Mohr representing Dubbo Regional Council.
