Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day is celebrated in the Commonwealth countries to commemorate the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty since World War 1.


The significance of the red poppy is from the poem In Flanders Fields.  The date 11 November was chosen to recall the end of World War 1 in 1918.
