Armistice Day is on 11th November and is also known as Remembrance Day. It marks the day that World War One ended, at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month, in 1918.
Remembrance Day is a memorial day observed in Commonwealth member states since the end of the First World War to honour armed forces members who have died in the line of duty. Following a tradition inaugurated by King George V in 1919, the day is also marked by war remembrances in many non-Commonwealth countries.
On Thursday, President David Button and I laid a wreath at the Berwick cenotaph on behalf of the Club, to commemorate those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
"Lest we forget."
