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

At a well-attended ceremony at Carinity Cedarbrook on 11 November, 100-year-old resident Gordon Jamieson paid his respects to fallen military mates.

Gordon fought with the Australian Army in the Malayan campaign during World War II.

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