My blog is all about the famous outback Australian National Heritage Listed City named Broken Hill, located in the state of New South Wales. I first visited #BrokenHill in 2002 and have returned many times since then. ilovebrokenhill.com will help you discover what's great about this historic mining city, where in the mid 1880's the line of lode, a rich ore body of silver, lead and zinc was found. You will find stories about anything related to Broken Hill.

Today at 11am Commonwealth countries will remember the fallen soldiers would fought for their countries during World War 1 (WW1).  The end of hostilities occurred on this day in 1918.  We mark the time with a minute's silence at 11am on this day each year.

The red poppies bloomed across some of the worst battlefields in Flanders during WW1, their red colour being a reminder and symbol of the blood spilled during this war.

Lest We Forget

Thank you to all soldiers who died in the line of duty for their countries.

Rest in peace
