Veterans Day 11th November

Veterans Day or Remembrance Day as it is know in Europe and the commonwealth, is the day for us to show our respect and gratitude to the men and women of the armed forces both past and present. The work that they do in peacetime and during conflicts around the world so that we can enjoy our way of life back home.

This day was set out to mark the end of the great war at the eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month, a war to end all wars. Nearly one hundred years on and with many conflicts past and present we still need our armed forces so take a moment to think of our armed forces and the work that they do and lets hope that we will not need them in the future.
