100 Years

1918 - 2018

Marking the end of World War I

Armistice Centenary Tribute

This website is a collaborative project by members of the Bayside U3A Writers Group to celebrate the Centenary of Armistice. After four years of conflict the Armistice ended the First World War at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, 1918.

It is the love of the written word that has inspired the Bayside U3A Writers to create and share short stories, poetry and radio plays to pay an ongoing tribute to those who served in the War and to commemorate the concept of peace.

Some works are original in their concept, while others are based on true-life stories. To retain historical truth, it is unavoidable to include depictions of the horrors of war, and racist language and attitudes of the time which may be considered unacceptable if used today.

We respectfully acknowledge that the Boon wurrung people of the Kulin Nation were the traditional custodians of the land that now comprises the City of Bayside. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging, and acknowledge and uphold their continuing relationship to this land. This acknowledgement also recognises the importance, diversity and strength of Indigenous cultures to the heritage of all Australians.
