"The Festival of Remembrance is an annual event to honour those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in the service of their country. The Festival comprises a service of Remembrance and an observance of the Two Minute Silence. It is also an opportunity to think about the Service men and women around the world who are putting their lives at risk protecting our peace and freedom today."

There are too many local events, at local memorials, to mention. You will know where they are - on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.
