Monday 11 November 2013 — Remembrance Day.

Once again, we gather to remember that eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, when the guns went silent and the Great War ended.

It is time to honour and remember the veterans of all wars and to hear the words of John McCrae’s poem In Flanders Fields recited beside cenotaphs and war memorials around the world.
