101 YEARS AGO THE GUNS FELL SILENT

Today in Belgium (Monday 11th November) it is Wapenstilstand Dag (Ceasefire Day). It marks the anniversary of the beginning of the Armistice and the end of the First World War.

And the troops of both sides could return to their loved ones.

Except for those that would never return at all. This day is also a day to remember those from all conflicts who paid the ultimate price to preserve our freedoms. Please take a few minutes to remember them all.

And also remember the families of those who don’t return and those that do return and may need help. You can help them by supporting the organisations, in your country, that help the veterans of conflict. Below is a link to one of those.

The Royal British Legion

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: 
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. 
At the going down of the sun and in the morning 
We will remember them.

WE WILL REMEMBER
