Remembrance Day

November brings with it Remembrance Day. The Memorial Day observed on 11 November each year. This tradition has been held since the end of the First World War to remember the members of the armed forces that have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

It began with King George V in 1919 as an evolution of Armistice Day.

There are many events held nationally to commemorate the day – find your local event to join the remembrance.

Each year Edinburgh’s Princes Street Gardens hosts a memorial garden, well worth a visit.

And don’t forget to observe the two-minute silence at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month (11:00 am, 11 November), as that marks the time the armistice became effective.

What our customers think

"A very interesting and moving experience leaving us all with much to think about and remember."

The variety of the visits and the personal stories made it even more memorable. the supporting materials of appropriate videos, songs and information booklets made us realise that much thought and preparation and enthusiasm had gone into the planning and execution of our Battlefields experience. Thank you very much.
