11am on the 11 November 1918 marked Armistice Day signaling the end of hostilities of the Great War. This tradition continues through today and is now called Remembrance Day in memory of all those who died or suffered in all wars and armed conflicts.

 

“They shall grow not old as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.”

“For the Fallen”, Laurence Binyon (1869-1943)
