Residents across the Lower South West paused for one minute on Monday in honour of Remembrance Day.
Services were held in Manjimup and Greenbushes on Monday as part of the November 11 tradition.
In Manjimup, RSL president Rex Brown thanked everyone for attending such an important day.
“Today we remember all those who fought and sacrificed their lives for us,” he said.
Following the service, the community was invited back to the Manjimup RSL Hall where a gift from the Manjimup CWA and Manjimup Men’s Shed was unveiled.
Manjimup CWA members knitted a giant poppy that was encased in a box made by the Men’s Shed.
CWA secretary/treasurer Maureen Barton said the knitted poppy was made up of individually knitted poppies.
“There’s one for every person, give or take a few extra, from Manjimup who went and fought in the war,” she said.
“The purple knitted poppies represent the local horses that were sent to World War I and did not return.
“The gold poppy in the middle represents the gold standard service given by all those who served and not just those who died.”
Mr Brown said it was an absolutely beautiful gift.
“You can see there were so many hours that went into this,” he said.
“We want to display it somewhere prominent in the hall so everyone who comes in here can see it.”
