Armistice Day




Armistice Day is observed every 11th November, to commemorate the signing of the armistice between the Allies and Germany on 11 November 1918.   This significant treaty brought an end to World War I.

It is marked by two minutes silence at 11am on the 11th November in respect and remembrance of the 20 million people who died during the conflict.

You can visit the Cenotaph in London City to pay respects and to collect a poppy to wear.  Clicking one of the wreaths will send you a link to the Royal British Legion.
