We Will Remember Them

Case Studies
Today is the 11th November. In the early 20th Century there had been no global war and World War One was referred to as 'The Great War'. Horrific atrocities and loss of life occurred across the planet. It is estimated that 8.5 million troops died with a total of over 15 million including civilian deaths 

After four years of war, guns fell silent on the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month in 1918. The background to the 2 minute silence can be found here.

Since this date, we use this time to remember the people who suffered or lost their lives in both the first and second world war. We remember those who fell in conflict. We remember those who gave sacrifice across the world and from all denominations.

So many wars, so much carnage, so many questions. This moment isn't for political purposes, but to remember the men and women that signed up for service and paid the ultimate sacrifice for the belief in the good they gave. They didn't return. They didn't get to see their kids. People grew up with photographs, not hugs.

Please use this time to consider that life, that person and that moment. We thank with deep gratitude every person that works and has worked in the Armed Forces and take these moments to remember. We will remember them.
