The guns of the Western Front fell silent

After more than four long years of war, the guns of the Western Front fell silent at 11am on the 11th November 1918. This moment became universally associated with the remembrance of those who died during the Great War of 1914-18. Australians committed never to forget the service and sacrifice of the 416,000 countrymen who enlisted and the more than 60,000 who died. 

For over 100 years we have kept that promise to remember all those who died or suffered for Australia's cause in all wars and armed conflicts.

Ordinary young Australians did something extraordinary for King and country during WW1. Their efforts need to be remembered.

We Remember Our Queensland Riflemen

568 Queensland riflemen of the more than 5000 who went to war,  made the supreme sacrifice during WW1.  The QRA Museum’s WW1 Honour Board records the names of many of these fallen soldiers. 

To date, 146 of these men are listed on the Honour Board, with more to be added through ongoing research. In 2022, we remember James Edward Herbert MC.

James Edward Herbert MC

James Edward Herbert MC – who fought at Gallipoli, served in the Middle East and died on the Western Front during World War I.

He was a rifle shooter with the Nerang Rifle Club before enlistment. But most importantly, he was a family man who left behind a wife and a very young daughter – they never saw him again. He is a hero of our nation; we will remember him and the many other fallen soldiers who paid the supreme sacrifice for their country.
