Remembrance Day

Armistice Day is on November 11. Also known as Remembrance Day, this annual day of remembrance marks the end of the First World War and a 2 minute silence is held to remember those who have died in wars.

Remembrance Sunday is the second Sunday of November. Nationally, ceremonies are held at war memorials, cenotaphs and religious buildings to invite the community to take part in acts of Remembrance.

Remembrance Day events are important community events, and most community organisations, such as the Scouts, will be traditionally involved.

Find out more about the contribution Scouts made during the First and Second World Wars through The Scout Association Heritage Service's online exhibitions.
