Across Australia today, thousands of Aussies paused for a minute of silence to reflect on the commitment and sacrifice made by those that have served our country.

The idea for the two-minutes silence is said to have originated with Edward George Honey, a Melbourne journalist and First World War veteran who was living in London in 1919. He wrote a letter to the London Evening News in which he appealed for five-minutes’ silence, to honour the sacrifice of those who had died during the war.

As photo restorers we’ve been incredibly privileged to see and hear the many stories behind old photographs of those that have served our country.

Here are 6 military photos we’ve restored for customers across Australia. What an honour it is to be trusted to bring these faded memories back to life!
