Grey nomads have joined thousands of people across the country to mark Remembrance Day.

Around 3,000 people attended the ceremony at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra.

Today marks 101 years since the Armistice was signed to end the World War I — a conflict that claimed the lives of 60,000 Australians.

Australian War Memorial director Brendan Nelson told the ABC that those battling the country’s devastating bushfires were also in his thoughts.
