11am on the 11th day of November marks the time World War I officially came to an end in 1918.
Just after 5am on November 11, 1918, Germany and the Allies signed an armistice – a formal agreement to stop fighting.
Armistice Day each November sharply focuses our attention on the two world wars of the 20th century in which thousands of Britons perished.
Earlier this week, pupils from Flowery Field Primary School had been putting their artistic skills to the test to create a bright remembrance poppy garden, produced a comprehensive ‘book of remembrance’ and added a full sized 3d soldier figure to display their artwork on the day.
Several of the pupils also produced a short video depicting the schools acts of remembrance.
Headteacher, Alvin Fell said: “Each class produced a number of poppies to add to the beautiful outdoor art display as well as the stunning soldier figure, whilst compiling a book of remembrance in honour of those brave residents of our town who paid the ultimate sacrifice to preserve our freedom and way of life.”
