Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day is an annual event, where we remember all the people who have lost their lives while serving in the armed forces. It’s also called Armistice Day or Poppy Day.

In Britain, Remembrance Day has been a tradition since the end of the First World War. It’s also celebrated in many countries across the globe. People from different backgrounds, cultures, and religions come together to honour Remembrance Day.    

We remember the bravery and courage of those who fought in the World Wars on Remembrance Day. But, we also commemorate all those who have served in the army since, and those who are serving in the army today.
