The Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in Canberra requests the honour of your presence at a memorial service on

Sunday, 19 November 2017, from 11:00am to 12:30pm, at the German War Cemetery in Tatura, Victoria

The commemoration ceremony will be held to honour the German and Australian War Dead.

You are kindly invited to give a short speech and to present a wreath or a flower tribute. Please inform the Embassy if you wish to do so.

As the Tatura World War II Internment and POW Camps Collection, 49 Hogan St Tatura, has recently been listed on the Heritage Victoria Register, the official plaque will be formally unveiled on the day. A wreath laying ceremony at Tatura Cenotaph will follow.

The Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany has the pleasure to invite everybody present at the memorial service to a lunch, which will be held at the “Tatura Hotel“.

Places are limited; please confirm your attendance, advising if you prefer a vegetarian or a non-vegetarian meal.

Kindly RSVP to Mrs Grit Beyer by 10 November via telephone 02 6270 1955 or vw-101 @canb.diplo.de (Please specify which event you will be attending)
