At 11 am on 11 November 1918 the guns of the Western Front fell silent after more than four years continuous warfare. The allied armies had driven the German invaders back, having inflicted heavy defeats upon them over the preceding four months. In November the Germans called for an armistice in order to secure a peace settlement. They accepted allied terms that amounted to unconditional surrender.
At 11am this morning we too will remember them.
LEST WE FORGET.
