Pipers from around the globe will perform at their local War Memorials on 11/11/18 as a part of the "Battles O'er" Project to remember the end of the Great War 1914 - 1918. This is being coordinated by the College of Piping, Glasgow, Scotland.
In Adelaide, South Australia, a massed Pipe Band will perform in the CBD at 4:15 PM to mark the signing of the Armistice and various pipers will perform throughout the city and suburbs at various Memorial sites.
Australia's leading piper, Brett Tidswell, National Principal of Piping for the Australian Pipe Band Association and several times National Champion, will perform at 11:00AM at the Campbelltown War Memorial on the corner of Gorge Road and Lower North East Road, Campbelltown.
Brett has several family members named on the St. Martin's Memorial and family buried in the cemetery behind the church. Brett played at the re-opening of the Memorial following its refurbishment at the start of the Great War centennial commemorations.
"This is a significant milestone and we will be the last generation that has a memory of those who committed such a significant sacrifice. Our family lost several members to the war effort and those who returned had a significant impact on those around them." The centenary cannot be allowed to pass without acknowledgment.
