Remembrance Day was first observed in 1919 throughout the British Commonwealth. It was originally called Armistice Day to commemorate the armistice agreement that ended the First World War on Monday 11th November 1918 at 11am. The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.
They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old; Age shall not weary them, Nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them.
As well as the usual moments of silence, staff and residents at Eastleigh Care Homes have been busy commemorating all the men and woman who served and sacrificed for our country. Lets give a moment to give thanks and to remember. Lest we forget.
