Nation falls silent as millions honour UK’s war dead on Armistice Day

The Metro says Britain fell silent on Thursday morning in remembrance of the nation’s war dead.

A two-minute silence took place across the country at 11am, marking 102 years since the first two-minute silence was observed on Armistice Day, November 11, 1919.

Each year, the two-minute silence marks the end of the four-year conflict in 1918 where an agreement between Germany and the Allies was made ‘on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month’.

Services were held at The Cenotaph on Whitehall as well as Westminster Abbey, where the Duchess of Cornwall was among those paying their respects.
