Remembrance Day "November 11th"

Message  Nick le Mar 14 Sep - 14:49

At the 11th hour, on the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, Remembrance Day was written into history. It was the day The Armistice was signed to end hostilities of the Great War of 1914 – 1918.

Armistice Day 1918
The Armistice was signed to end the bloodiest war the world had ever seen. Also known as Armistice Day, we now honor it with a minute of silence at 11am, 11th November every year. Remember the children of our country that gave their life for a conflict that they didn’t choose to have. They went there and fought for their country, but moreso fought for other people and countries too.


The Flanders Poppy
The battlefields of Belgium and France claimed countless lives. The red poppies were the first flowers to appear on the blood soaked battlefields of Flanders. It was said that they were red from the blood of the soldiers. The Flanders Poppy became known as the flower to wear in honor of Remembrance Day.

Mistakes Of The Past
Remembrance Day is an important day for us to remember the past by feeling and giving honor to those that suffered from the Great War of 1914 – 1918.

Hello Nick I have found something interesting on the net about poppies
Long before the Great War, the red poppy had become a symbol of death, renewal and life. The seeds of the flower can remain dormant in the earth for years, but will blossom spectacularly when the soil is churned. It is exactly what happened during the great war. Any war is so absurd !
