Country Squire Magazine stands in silence today at 11 in the morning to remember.
Remembrance Day is observed on 11 November in most countries to recall the end of hostilities of World War I on that date in 1918. Hostilities formally ended “at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month”, in accordance with the armistice signed by representatives of Germany and the Entente between 5:12 and 5:20 that morning. (“At the 11th hour” refers to the passing of the 11th hour, or 11:00 am.)
We will remember our fallen relatives, our friends and our ancestors. All those brave men and women who laid down their lives for our freedoms.
Today is not political.
It is not controversial.
It is about respect, pride and honour.
Lest we ever forget.
