Armistice Day: Silence held in 11 places at the 11th hour

A two-minute silence is held, to commemorate the dead of the two world wars, and all later conflicts.

Armistice began at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month - the time in 1918 when the guns finally fell silent along the Western Front in Europe.

Armistice Day follows similar ceremonies on Remembrance Sunday to pay tribute to all those who died in World Wars One and Two and in every conflict since.
