At a quiet ceremony in Katherine today, a handful of people marked Remembrance Day with members of the Royal Australian Air Force, leaders and members of the police.
Today marks 101 years since the Armistice was signed to end the first World War.
It was a conflict which claimed the lives of more than 60,000 Australians, and cast shadows on many others who made it home.
The ceremony began early this year with a decommissioning service at the old Cenotaph - a formal closure - before everyone relocated to the new Cenotaph where a member of the RAAF raised the flag as people took their seats out of the scorching sun.
Before a one minute's silence was observed, wreaths were laid and the national anthem was sung.
"We pray for families and for ourselves, who's freedom was won at such a high cost," Chaplain Mitch Herps said.
"We remember the sacrifice of those caught up in war, the generations of men, women and children who have died in the cause of liberty and peace help us to remember those who still bear the physical and mental scars and disabilities of their service."
