Tweed Heads goes silent for Remembrance Day
MORE than 200 people turned out for Tuesday's Remembrance Day Service at Tweed Heads.
Tweed-Coolangatta RSL sub branch delegate Les Taylor was a wireless telegrapher with the Navy during the Korean War.
He said while Remembrance Day had never attracted the same numbers as Anzac Day, he felt there'd been good community involvement in the day.
"I think each year we're all remembering that even though the numbers of returned servicemen and women are dwindling the public is becoming more present at these occasions," Mr Taylor said.
"That was a good representation of the community here today."
RSL members made up the bulk of the crowd at the service, before a second event in Coolangatta an hour later.
