Each Remembrance Day, join us in honouring those who gave their lives in service.  

11 November marks the anniversary of the Armistice that ended fighting with Germany in World War I.  

Every year at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, millions around the world pause in silence to remember the sacrifices many have made so we can enjoy life today. 

Lest We Forget


Plant a poppy in the virtual Remembrance Garden to help support veterans and their families.
