WE WILL REMEMBER THEM
Armistice Day was the day created to commemorate those who died or fell wounded during the 'war to end all wars', the First World War. Today we call it Remembrance Day: we remember not only those who died in the First World War but during the minute's silence at the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month, we think of all who have sacrificed for our country. We especially rememember this week our men and women serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.
