Australia is commemorating the declaration of war on August the 4th 1914 that began World War One – and ended with the deaths of nine-million soldiers, including more than sixty-thousand Australians.Prime Minister Tony Abbott has laid a wreath at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra and a national commemoration service will be held this evening at the War Memorial in Canberra to mark the occasion.’They are not just a list’ said Prime Minister Tony Abbott, speaking from the Roll of Honor.’Behind each name there is a story and ultimately we wish to know all those stories.’The events of 100 years ago still reverberate around the world today, and these stories, good and not so good, can help to shape us and to shape our times.’Over the next four years we should reflect on the tragedy and the magnificence of the human condition.’Europe will meanwhile commemorate the centenary of the outbreak of World War One in a series of events across the continent.The Prince of Wales will attend a Service of Remembrance at Glasgow Cathedral.He will be joined by 1,400 invited guests, among them representatives of Commonwealth countries, and senior military figures, charities and cross-faith groups.Prince Charles will then lay a wreath at the Cenotaph in George Square.But the main focus of commemoration will happen later in the day at a small cemetery in Belgium.The British Government and Commonwealth War Graves Commission will host an international event at the small St Symphorien Cemetery, outside the town of Mons.It will be attended by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry, the King and Queen of Belgium and senior representatives from the UK, France, Ireland, Canada and Germany.The cemetery was chosen because it contains an almost equal number of German and Commonwealth graves.It is also the burial ground for the first and last British soldiers to be killed on the Western Front and the first soldier to be awarded the Victoria Cross in the 1914-18 conflict, Lieutenant Maurice James Dease.There is a particular focus on the younger generation, reflected in the members of the Royal Family chosen to attend and various contributors to the vent itself.To close the day, a candlelit vigil will be held at Westminster Abbey in London. It will mark the time Britain declared war on Germany.It will pay tribute to the famous words spoken by the Foreign Secretary of the time, Sir Edward Grey, who remarked as he gazed out of his office and over St James’ Park, that “the lamps are going out all over Europe; we shall not see them lit again in our lifetime”.In memory of that, candles will be extinguished one-by-one until a single burning oil lamp remains at the Grave of the Unknown Warrior.The lights on Tower Bridge and the Blackpool Illuminations will also go dark and households across the country are encouraged to join in.A lone candle on the steps of Downing Street will be the only light in that Whitehall corridor of power where so many tough decisions were taken 100 years ago – See more at: http://www.skynews.com.au/news/top-stories/2014/08/04/ceremonies-begin-to-mark-100-years-since-wwi.html#sthash.o0pWsZYI.dpuf
