''We will remember them.....''

Created on Wednesday, 10 November 2010

800px-Inflandersfieldslestweforget01 'Poppy Day' is observed on the 11th of November to recall the official end of World War I on that date in 1918, as the major hostilities of World War I were formally ended "at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month" of 1918 with the German signing of the Armistice (Note that "at the 11th hour", refers to the passing of the 11th hour, or 11:00 am.)

Remembrance Day (also known as Armistice Day or Veterans Day ) is a memorial day observed in Commonwealth countries to remember the sacrifices of members of the armed forces and civilians in times of war, specifically since the First World War. This day, or alternative dates, are also recognised as special days for war remembrances in many non-Commonwealth countries.

More information about the Two-Minute Silence, Remembrance Sunday and the Remembrance Festival is available on the Legion's website.
