Remembrance Day or Armistice Day

On the 11th day of the 11th month a two-minute silence is held at 11am to remember the people who have died in wars.

Lest We Forget

Remembrance Day is a memorial day observed in Commonwealth member states since the end of the First World War to remember the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty. Following a tradition inaugurated by King George V in 1919, the day is also marked by war remembrances in many non-Commonwealth countries.
