ARMISTICE – 100 YEARS ON

ARMISTICE – 100 YEARS ON

2018 marks 100 years since the end of the First World War and it is our chance to sit back and reflect and offer our deepest gratitude to those who fought so very hard to keep England free from tyranny.

10,000 members of the public are being invited to parade past the Cenotaph following the traditional British Legion Veterans march on Remembrance Sunday.

Bells will also feature in the celebrations as the UK and German Governments have agreed to take part in an international event ‘Ringing Out for Peace - Battle’s Over’ which is set to take place on 11th November also. Campanologists from across the UK and Germany will ring their bells and join more than a thousand churches and cathedrals which will be the most widespread bell ringing since the end of the First World War. More than 1400 bell ringers died during the conflict, so it will be a fitting tribute to those and all the men and women who lost their lives on land or the high seas.

The UK event will be mirrored in Australia, Canada, Denmark, the USA, Somaliland and our own Channel Islands and Isle of Man.

In our own nod to those who lost their lives, we have had a 100 shot all red firework called ARMISTICE made which will be with us in time for Bonfire Night and of course, the innumerable Remembrance events which will be taking place this year.
