Monday 11th November             Armistice Day

Sunday 10th                 Remembrance Sunday

Remembrance Day, 11th November each year, is a day when we remember and thank all the men and women killed in military conflict - by purchasing artificial poppies from the Royal British Legion, a charity for war veterans. Remembrance Day was dedicated by King George V on 7th November 1919, for members of the armed services who were killed in World War 1. 

The red poppy became the emblem because poppies were growing all across the battlefields of Flanders in World War 1, red being an appropriate colour for blood spilt at war
