Remembrance Day

Originally known as Armistice Day, Remembrance Day commemorates the signing of the peace agreement that ended WW11 at 11am on 11 Nov 1918.  It is a time for all to remember and honour the memory of all those the men and women who served, are currently serving and those we have lost to the cause.  Lest We Forget.
