Armistice and Remembrance
Pause, breathe, reflect.
The guns on the Western Front fell silent, signalling the end of the First World War 104 years ago. Ever since we have remembered the sacrifice that soldiers have made, and continue to, by wearing a poppy and observing the two-minute silence.
The red poppy is a symbol of remembrance and hope for a peaceful world and positive future. The two-minute silence happens at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month.
Remembrance Sunday this year is on 13th November, and it is a further opportunity to remember the service of those and past and current who preserve our freedom.
Lest we forget.
