AS we approach Remembrance Day 2018, the country is preparing to remember those who gave their lives in war. Here's a selection of poems and quotes perfect for the 100-year anniversary of the First World War. Poems The Soldier - Rupert Brooke If I should die, think only this of me: That there’s some corner of a foreign field That is for ever England.

ON NOVEMBER 11 at 11am, people across the UK will fall silent to remember those who lost their lives fighting for their country. Armistice Day falls on November 11 every year, to commemorate the end of the First World War in 1918. Here is the history behind the day. Why the 11th Hour of the 11th Day of the 11th Month? On the eleventh day of the eleventh month - November- at 11am marks the time World War I officially came to an end in 1918. Just after 5am on November 11, 1918, Germany and the Allies signed an armistice - a formal agreement to stop fighting. The armistice, sometimes known as the Armistice of Compiègne after the location it was signed (around 60 miles north east of Paris), marked victory for the Allies. Although fighting stopped just a few hours after the armistice was signed, it took months of negotiations to register the peace treaty, the Treaty of Versailles. Why do we say 'lest we forget'? The phrase 'lest we forget' is thought to come from the poem … [Read more...] about Armistice Day 2018 – where do ‘at the 11th Hour of the 11th Day of the 11th Month’ and ‘lest we forget’ come from?
