As we know 11th November is Remembrance Day a Memorial Day observed in Commonwealth of Nations member states since the end of the First World War to remember the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty.
The memorial evolved out of Armistice Day which continues to be marked on the same day every year and was first observed at Buckingham Palace, commencing with King George V hosting a “Banquet in Honour of the President of the French Republic during the evening hours of 10 November 1919. The first official Armistice Day was subsequently held on the grounds of Buckingham Palace the following morning.
