Residents and staff at Carinity aged care communities around Queensland have honoured fallen soldiers on Remembrance Day.

At a well-attended ceremony at Carinity Brookfield Green on 11 November, 96-year-old resident Brian Beames paid his respects to his fallen military mates.

During World War II, Brian served in the Royal Australian Navy on the HMAS Lithgow, which located German mines and destroyed Japanese minelaying submarines.

He served on waters off Australia, Papua New Guinea and Japan, where he saw the devastating aftermath of the atomic bomb attack on Hiroshima.

Remembrance Day gatherings at Carinity Brookfield Green and other Carinity aged care communities across Queensland also included special displays of military information and memorabilia.
