The War To End Wars

11th November, 1918 - Armistice Day


The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month guns fell silent; peace was declared the war the end wars was over.

And here we are over ninety years later, parts of the war are still at war. What a testament.

They shall not grow old

They shall not grow 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.


From Laurence Binyon's poem For the Fallen, written in September 1914
