What is RSL Life Care? Find out

On 11 November 1918, the guns of the western front fell silent after four years of continous warfare. With their armies retreating and close to collapse, German leaders signed an Armistice, ending the First World War.

The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month attained special significance in the post-war years. The moment when hostilities ceased on the Western Front became universally associated with the remembrance of those who had died in the war.


Bob Durbin

Bob Durbin, a distinguished RSL LifeCare resident, Chaplain, and dedicated President of the RSL War Vets sub-Branch, brings with him a wealth of experience from his 20-year service in the Royal Australian Navy. Bob’s naval journey began at HMAS Marimba as a trainee apprentice, rising to the rank of Warrant Officer. Bob’s commitment to service extended into the mid-nineties, serving as a reserve before a permanent role as sailor for six and a half months.

“Remembrance Day, as I see it, has evolved over time without diminishing its significance. It serves as a reminder to honour not only those who have bravely served in theatres of war and battle but also those who have selflessly contributed through their dedicated service.” – Bob Durbin.
