In the U.S., November 11th is Veterans’ Day – when we celebrate the contribution of those who have served to protect our liberties. A worthy day, which got its start as Armistice Day celebrating the end of The Great Way – World War I, which ended with the Armistice which went into effect at the 11 hour on the 11 day of the 11 month.

In the UK, that day, November 11th is still remembered for ending the war and Brits honor the day each year with Remembrance Sunday on the Sunday closest to the 11th – which this year just happens to be the exact date.

Further, this year marks the centenary of the Armistice – it was 100 years ago today when World War I ended. The day is being marked with events all over the world – but now where else quite like London.

I will be attending a few of the event planned to mark the 100th anniversary of the WWI Armistice in London today and this week and will share what I find here.
