Remembrance Day

11 November, 2021

At 11.00AM of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of each year, a minute’s silence is observed in Australia and some other Commonwealth countries to commemorate the 1918 silence on the Western Front after more than four years of continuous warfare in World War I. The Day marks the unconditional surrender by the Germans and their calling for an armistice (suspension of fighting) to secure a peace settlement. Remembrance Day (originally called Armistice Day and called Veterans Day in the United States) is to honour the memories of the 9-13 million who died during WWI.
