And today Armistice Day

Ninety one years ago today the First World War ended, the guns fell silent, and at the eleventh hour, on the eleventh day, in the eleventh month we remember the sacrifice of all those who died, not only in the first World war but in all the wars since across the world.

'Sleep well:  for I can follow you to bless
And lull your distant beauty where you roam;
And with wild songs of hoarded loveliness
Recall you to these arms that were your home.'

Siegfried Sassoon
