Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day is observed on the 11th of November to remember all those who have served in the armed forces and lost their lives during war. The day is also known as Armistice Day and Poppy Day. It was first observed in 1919 to mark the end of World War I. On this day, remembrance ceremonies are held at war memorials and cemeteries across the UK, poppy wreaths are laid, and prayers are said for peace. Remembrance Day is an important day for everyone, especially those who have lost loved ones in war. It is a day to reflect on the sacrifices made by so many and to show our appreciation for the freedom we enjoy today. Thank you to all those who have served, and we will never forget your bravery.
