Remembrance Day 2023
We come together on this day, 11th November, each year, to remember all those who served their country in wars both past and present.
We remember all those who gave their lives in World Wars I and II, those who made the ultimate sacrifice to allow us the freedoms we enjoy today. We remember those who have served in more recent conflicts such as those in Iraq and Afghanistan, and those in the currents conflict in Ukraine and Gaza, along with all those who have been affected by war.
We take time today out of our busy lives to mark this day, when at 11.00am on the 11th November, 1918, 105 years ago, the guns fell silent on the Western Front after four years of continuous warfare. We called the First World War, the Great War, the war to end all wars. Unfortunately, history tells us that the lessons of the First World War have not been learned.
Today, we remember all those who continue to give their lives in the fight for freedom and democracy, and we will do the same each year, joining millions of people around the world, to remember.
