Remembrance Day: 11/11/2016 21:35:08

Today is armistice day where the Brits place their poppy's in reefs and wear them with pride. As they are grateful for the gift of life and freedom because of their brave men in WW1 who gave their life so the modern day Brits could celebrate a special day for themselves. But we should pay our respects to all British men, women,children as young as 15 who gave their lives in any way. So I think I speak for all of warlight when I say RIP to all soldiers who have died in vain since 1914.

11.11.1914 or the day when armistice was signed was the day when World War 1 was effectively ended on the western front and in its entirety. Though the German capitulation happened at 5 o'clock later on at night on the same day, the real armistice was signed at 11 o'clock in the Compiègne Wagon. During those 6 hours both sides were already losing many men however. Prior to the agreement the Weimar Republic had already replaced the German Empire and had experienced a failed communist coup attempt in Bavaria. No German general had the intention to continue the war as their situation was hopeless.

But as for this day, we remember the lives that died for Belgium and allies. The pointless and meaningless massacre of soldiers only to gain additional kilometers of enemy's territory. The horror. And the great patriotic lie.

Happy remembrance day everybody

What a horrible error. I probably messed up by first ending my phrase with 'since 1914' and then continued to use 1914 in the next sentence. Thanks for your notice.

Well, have a happy Remembrance day. Or Veteran's day in the US, because for some reason we don't care about WWI.

Does Belgium have a holiday for VE day?

Ever thought that every generation since WW1 thought they'd be the last ones using bayonets?
