As you fly, drive and sail today, take a moment to remember the brave warriors who serve or have served in the armed forces all across the world, even at the cost of giving their life for what they believed in. In reality, this honour has no boundaries, no politics, just a belief in fighting for their loved ones and their country.

Remembrance Day is observed on the 11th of November to remind us all of the end of hostilities in World War I on this date in 1918. Hostilities formally ended: at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. Remembrance Sunday is the day most ceremony's and events are held and is the Sunday closest to the 11th.

The red remembrance poppy has become the emblem of Remembrance Day. These poppies bloomed across some of the worst battlefields of Flanders in World War I, their brilliant red colour an fitting symbol for the blood spilled in any war.

Veterans Day is also an official United States holiday which honors people who have served in the armed services.

Today, we remember all those who served, and those made the ultimate sacrifice in all conflicts, from all nations.

They shall grow not 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. Lest we forget.

~ Ode of Remembrance
