Remembrance Day in Britain is comming up! November is the time of the year when we wear a red poppy in memory of those who sacrificed their lives for us during wars. Remembrance Day is on 11 November. It is a special day set aside to remember all those men and women who were killed during the two World Wars and other conflicts. At one time the day was known as Armistice Day and was renamed Remembrance Day after the Second World War.A national ceremony takes place at the Cenotaph in Whitehall, London. The Queen lays the first wreath at the Cenotaph.A poem called 'For the Fallen' is often read aloud during the ceremony; the most famous stanza of which reads: They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them." Fourth stanza of 'For the Fallen' by Laurence Binyon (1869 - 1943)At 11am on each Remembrance Sunday a two minute silence is observed at war memorials and other public spaces across the UK."Old soldiers never die, They simply fade they say......
