I will never forget my mother weeping quietly every Remembrance day in Scotland for my brother Tony. His picture appears in my signature. KIA 1942, age 21.

Thanks for posting this Secudus and for your fine contributions to this Forum.

I don't celebrate holidays, or anything like that, but November 11th is a day I never forget about.

Remembrance Sunday occurs in Britain at the beginning of November. It falls on the Sunday closest to the 11th November and is usually referred to as Remembrance Sunday or occasionally Armistice Day. This particular date was chosen in recognition of the end of World War I (at the time referred to as The Great War). The end of World War I happened in 1918 on the 11th day of the 11th month at the 11th hour, 11am on the 11th of November. Some people still observe a two minute silence at this time. Some places will observe this silence on the actual day, some on Remembrance Sunday. However, today Remembrance Sunday is used to remember all those who have given their lives whilst serving Britain.
