Remembrance Day is a special day set aside each year to commemorate the end of World War I. On November 11, 1918, at 11:00 am—the “11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month”—the guns fell silent after more than four years of conflict. Since that time, Remembrance Day has been observed annually in Commonwealth countries around the world.

It is a time to reflect on the sacrifices made by our armed forces, both past, and present. It is also a time to honour those who have given their lives in service of our countries.

This year, Remembrance Day falls on Friday 11th November. On this day, we will remember all those who have died in conflicts, both at home and abroad. We will also pay tribute to the men and women who are currently serving in our armed forces. Remembrance Sunday is on Sunday 13th of November

Why We Remember

It is important that we take the time to remember those who have given their lives in service of our country. Their sacrifices have allowed us to enjoy the freedoms that we have today

We also remember those who are currently serving in our armed forces. They put themselves in harm’s way so that we can live in peace and safety. They are true heroes, and we owe them a great debt of gratitude

How You Can Show Your Support

There are many ways you can show your support on Remembrance Day. The most obvious way is to wear a poppy. Poppies are worn as a symbol of remembrance and hope. They are also worn to support the Royal British Legion, which does vital work in supporting members of the armed forces, veterans, and their families.

In the UK, Remembrance Day is also known as Poppy Day. This is because poppies are often worn on lapels and clothing as a symbol of remembrance. The red poppy was chosen as a symbol because it was one of the few flowers that continued to bloom in battlefields during World War I

You can also show your support by attending one of the many Remembrance Day events taking place across the country. At these events, you will have the opportunity to lay a wreath or participate in a two-minute silence. This is a chance for us all to come together and honour those who have given so much

Conclusion

Remembrance Day is an important day for all of us. It is a time for us to reflect on the sacrifices made by our armed forces, both past and present. It is also a time for us to show our support for those who are currently serving. So let us all take a moment on Friday 11th November to remember those who have given so much for our country.

Let us reflect on their sacrifices and be thankful for the peace and freedom we enjoy today. And let us recommit ourselves to working towards a future where such conflicts are no longer necessary. Lest we forget.
