What is Remembrance Day?
While it was originally conceived to mark the end of the First World War, Remembrance Day (also known as Armistice Day) is these days a commemoration of all those in the armed forces who have fought and died for their country.
Traditionally, Commonwealth countries observe a two-minute silence on Remembrance Day, and a ceremony on Remembrance Sunday sees British royals and the Prime Minister lay wreaths at the cenotaph in London.
