Armistice Day is the anniversary of the signing of the agreement which brought the First World War to an end. A two-minute silence is traditionally observed at 11 a.m. (the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month) in memory of the fallen, but most events have moved to Remembrance Sunday which is the nearest Sunday to the 11th.
