Lest we forgetPosted: November 11, 2016
It’s Remembrance Day; the anniversary of the end of the First World War.
At 11am on 11 November 1918 the guns of the Western Front fell silent after more than four years of continuous warfare. Earlier that day, the Germans had signed an armistice in a railway carriage at Compiègne.
Nowadays, nations around the globe fall silent for one minute at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month to remember those who have served their country during war.
We encourage you to observe one minute’s silence at 11am today to remember those who died or suffered in a war or armed conflict.
We will remember them.
