Armistice Day - 2011

Today is Armistice Day also known as Remembrance Day or Poppy Day.  The day is to recall the official end of World War I in 1918.  The hostilities formally ended " at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 with the German signing of the Armistice.  

At 11.00 am there was a two-minute silence were millions across the UK remember those brave heroes that fought and died for their country.

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.


And today is also 11/11/11 - 11th November 2011
