Armistice day

Today marks the 96th anniversary of the armistice that ended World War 1 (1914 to 1918).

My Great Grand-fathered travelled overseas from a tiny town in Queensland, Australia to the battle fields of France during World War 1. He was shot during battle in France, but luckily survived. So many didn’t, 16 million people died and 20 million were wounded. So at the  11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, we will remember their sacrifice.
