On November 11, 1918 at 11:00 a.m. – The eleventh hour, of the eleventh day, of the eleventh month, “the war to end all war” came to an end. The guns finally fell silent, bringing to a close four long years of unspeakable war.

November 11, 2018 will mark the monumental gathering in France and Belgium on the occasion of the 100th Anniversary of the end of the Great War, the final events which will bring to a close four years of Remembrance and reflection – a centenary that will also no doubt include various events and ceremonies that will take place across Canada.
