11 November is "Armistice Day", known variously around the world as 'Remembrance Day' (alternatively 'Remembrance Sunday' which is marked on the nearest Sunday to 11 Nov) and 'Veterans Day'. Since an Armistice was signed in the early hours of 11 November 1918 to formally end the Great War at 11:00am that morning, the 11th day of the 11th month at the 11th hour has been a time traditionally set aside for two minutes of silent reflection in memory of those who made the ultimate sacrifice (some have reduced this to one minute).This Sunday (11 Nov 2018) it will be 100 years since that first Armistice Day. If you haven't already done so, buy a poppy to wear and please make a point off stopping where ever you are at 11:00am to pay the appropriate respects.
