At 11 am on 11 November 1918 the guns of the Western Front fell silent after more than four years of continuous warfare. To mark this moment, all across the country (and in many countries around the world), there will be a 2 minute silence at 11am today as a mark of respect.
"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."
