On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month 1918 the guns feel silent and World War 1 was over. On 11/11/1919 King George 5th called for a two minute silence at 11am to remember those who had given their lives for ours, and many other countries. This has continued every year since, only now we remember those men and women of the arm forced lost in WW2, the Cold war, the Korean War, the Falklands war, war in Afghanistan and many other conflicts. We remember the men and women who have paid the ultimate price to keep us safe and free.
I have an grandfather, uncle and brother who have all served our country in the armed forced. I am grateful to say none of them lost their life fight, many thousands other can not make that claim. So today at 11am please all stop to observe 2 minutes of silence to remember and thank those who have given their lives….but also those who might have lived but still suffer.
Thank you all for you serves to this country.
