Eight young Western Australians have been selected to tour Europe to commemorate the Centenary of Armistice.
The group's 10-day tour of the former battlefields of Belgium and France starts in Paris on Sunday 4 November. It includes attendance at the Remembrance Day ceremony at the Australian War Memorial at Villers-Bretonneux on Sunday 11 November.
The State-funded tour is designed to bolster young Western Australians' knowledge of the implications of the First World War and of the Armistice that signalled its end whilst gaining valuable insights into the meaning of mateship and the Anzac spirit.
The Western Australian Centenary of Armistice Tour members are: Lauren Barrie, 22 of Byford; Stefaan Bruce-Truglio, 25 of Carramar; Enfys Jerwood, 23 of Shelley; Erin Ewens, 21 of Alkimos; Natasha Meston, 23 of Woodlands; Steven Morganti, 22 of Henley Brook; Rufus Morse, 24 of East Fremantle; and Karwin Murray, 22 of Brookdale.
