Remembrance Week

Remembrance day marks the day World War One ended at 11:00 on the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918.

On the 11th November we have a one minute silence for the people who fought in the war. The reason poppies are used to remember those who have given their lives in battle is because they are the flowers that grew on the battle field after the war ended.

This is described in the famous World War One poem in Flanders Fields which you can find on the internet.
