At 11 am on 11 November 1918 The First World War came to an end after more than four years continuous warfare.

To commemorate all those who lost their lives during the Great War, each year on 11 of November across the world are organized commemorative ceremonies. For this reason 11 of November has become known as the Remembrance Day. Part of ceremony is a one minute's silence at 11 am.

For those interested in commemorating this holdiay, here are a few services that are advertised on the RSL website.

In Australia, on 11 November 1993 at 11 am, the remains of an unknown Australian soldier from World War I were entombed with military honors in the Australian War Memorial in Canberra.

In many instances Remembrance Day is using the poppy as a symbol. This is a result of Canadian military physician John McCrae's poem In Flanders Fields.
