The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918

“At 5am on 11 November 1918, three German government representatives accepted the Armistice terms presented to them by an allied commander, General Foch of the French Army. The demands of the Armistice included the withdrawal of German forces to the east bank of the Rhine within 30 days; immediate cessation of warfare; and surrender of the German fleet and all heavy guns with no further negotiations until the signing of the peace treaty.

The armistice became effective at 11am the same day, and as the guns fell silent on the Western Front in France and Belgium, four years of hostilities ended.”

For our allies, Armistice Day, or Remembrance Day, November 11th, is a day to remember those who died.

ALL GAVE SOME, AND SOME GAVE ALL.  MAY GOD BLESS AND KEEP THEM.
