This event will be held 10am-2pm in John Butler Reserve, Mt Eliza Way, Mt Eliza. A series of “fun” competitions will follow the official opening by Cr Rosie Clark. The 16 competitions include best trick, “waggiest” tail, best dog hair style, most alike dog and owner and best golden oldie. Dogs can be entered into more than one competition. The expo will also include market stalls specialising in pet products, training aids and dogfriendly items, children’s activities, a sausage sizzle and other refreshments. Owners will be able to pose for a photo with their dog. Entry is free and there is a small entry fee to take part in the competitions. Money raised will go to Rotary’s community service projects including Dogs for Kids with Disabilities, planting trees in the John Butler Reserve and helping pay for two teams of year 11 students to participate in the Model United Nations Assembly to debate their solutions to some of today’s world issues. “The the Bark in the Park Dog Expo will certainly appeal to children with their dogs but parents and grandparents will also really enjoy the day,” Mt Eliza Rotary president David Rew said. “It is intended as a light-hearted day for the local community to get together and have fun in the company of their best mates.”

The Armistice of 1918

The Armistice between the Allies and Germany was signed at Compiègne and came into effect at 11 am on November 11 1918.The guns fell silent on the Western Front and after more than four years of unimaginable bloodshed and destruction, the fighting was finally over. At home in Australia, large crowds gathered in capital cities to celebrate the end of the conflict. The Armistice paved the way for the signing of a formal peace treaty, the Treaty of

On June 28 1919, the treaty was signed in the Hall of Mirrors at the Palace of Versailles, with Australian Prime Minister William Morris (Billy) Hughes and Deputy Prime Minister Joseph Cook adding their signatures on Australia’s behalf.

and resolve, and ensured that Australian troops in England waiting to come home had access to educational and vocational programmes.

Born in West Melbourne to migrant parents, John Monash studied arts and engineering before enlisting. He rose quickly through the ranks and also forged a successful career in business.

Among his many achievements as a statesmen and public figure was his leadership of the construction of the Shrine of Remembrance in Melbourne. He committed his later life to public service and to local community organisations.

His engineering background, and creative mind, led him to make use of technological advances on the battlefield. As he rose from brigadier, to divisional and then Corps commander he became increasingly adept at planning and executing set piece battles.

After the Second World War, Armistice Day became Remembrance Day, a time to commemorate war dead from all conflicts.

After several months of hard fighting on the Western Front, the Allies finally broke through the Hindenburg Line on September 29 1918.The German army was beaten and within weeks came the Armistice.

Biographers and military historians consider him among the best, if not the best, generals on the Western Front and he was knighted on the battlefield by King George V. After the war, far from resting on his laurels, he was given the task of repatriating the Australian Imperial Force, which he performed with enormous dedication

Almost a century after some of his greatest victories, Australia is rightly proud of Sir John Monash’s international reputation as a strategic military leader.
