About Remembrance Day

At 11am on the 11th November 1918, the guns on the Western Front fell silent after more than four years of continuous warfare resulting in approximately 9-13 million deaths and the mobilisation of over 70 million people. This date became remembered as Remembrance Day. 

On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, we observe one minute's silence in memory of those who died or suffered in all wars and armed conflicts.
