Today is British Remembrance Day which as some of you may know is always held on November 11th.  It was on this day in 1918 that World War I ended, when the armistice was signed in northern France at 5AM.  6 hours later the fighting stopped and to commemorate those who died for their country a 2 minute silence is held at 11AM UK time.
