On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918, the First World War ended.
Since then, 11 November (or Armistice Day) has been enshrined in the memories of the nation as a day to pause and remember those who have given their lives for the peace and freedom we enjoy today.
The Royal British Legion has always supported the traditional Remembrance Sunday services and the customary two minute silence on that day.
As the national custodian of remembrance, the Legion also believes that when 11 November falls on a day other than Sunday, remembrance should be brought into the everyday life of the nation on those days as well. The revival of support for observance of this demonstrates that, despite the passing of the years and the declining number of veterans, the nation still feels strongly about remembrance.
