The Remembrance Day ceremony at the Byron Bay Services Club attracted about 30 people and was led by Byron Bay RSL Sub-branch president Ted Fenton and Major Darren Elsley of the Salvation Army.
Mr Fenton told the crowd that the Great War (WW1) was the great carnage where a full generation of young men were killed.
“Never before in the modern history of mankind has human life been so carelessly valued and so easily sacrificed than it was in World War 1,” he said.
Following the service, wreaths were laid at the cenotaph and the Last Post was played by bugler Brian Pamphilon.
