Yes, I know it's a few days early.

The Brits are not waiting, they have events scheduled all week.

At the going down of the sun... Thousands of flaming torches light up the Tower Of London's moat in awe-inspiring tribute to fallen heroes of World War One

A Beefeater guard began the lighting ceremony by bringing a flame down from the tower to the moat
Dozens of representatives of the armed forces and volunteers then ignited thousands of torches
The ceremony was accompanied by specially commissioned sound installation as well as words from war poet Mary Borden's Sonnets To A Soldier
Beyond The Deepening Shadow, will be repeated each night until the final showing on Remembrance Sunday

Because this year is of course the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1,
there will be many events, lots of things to post.

They suffered a bit more than we did, so it's only right.

This is the big anniversary. 100 years since the signing of the Armistice to end the War. I wish more was being done to commemorate the day.

Nice pics Martin.

I wish our government did more for this, but there are organizations like No Stone Left Alone that step up:
