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.

There is a live broadcast on youtube from the National Memorial Arboretum (Alrewas, Staffordshire)

Services will be held on Remembrance Sunday, the closest Sunday to Nvember 11th across the UK.
