We Will Remember Them: A Timelapse at the Cenotaph

We Will Remember Them: A Timelapse at the Cenotaph

The First World War officially ended on the eleventh hour on the eleventh day on the eleventh month, 1918 - Armistice Day.  Today it's often known as Remembrance Day or Poppy Day and a two minute's silence is held for the fallen in all conflicts since this date.  In the UK and other Commonwealth members, a poppy is worn out of respect for those that gave their lives so we can live ours freely.
