At the eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month – we will remember them
The Armistice, an agreement to end the fighting of the First World War as a prelude to peace negotiations, began at 11am on 11 November 1918.
Armistice is Latin for to stand (still) arms.
To this day we mark Armistice Day around the United Kingdom with a Two Minute Silence at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month.
Held each year at 11am on 11 November, the silence coincides with the time in 1918 at which the First World War came to an end and is observed at war memorials and in public places throughout the UK and Commonwealth.
They shall not grow old, as we who are left shall grow old, nor age condemn, but at the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we shalt Remember Them. Lest We Forget
