Celebrated on November 11 of each year to remember and commemorate the courage and sacrifice of those who served their country in armed conflicts since the First World War for the achievement of Peace and our responsibility to maintain it.
The date recalls the armistice of the First World War, signed on November 11, 1918 at 11:00 am. in Le Francport, France which is why, every 11/11 at 11 am is the most solemn point of the ceremony, when "The Last Post" is played on the cornet in remembrance of the brave soldiers and civilians who have died in conflict.
It is an emotional ceremony, where the Ambassadors of the United Kingdom, the United States, France, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, the European Union and Germany are present and where the deceased on both sides of the wars are honoured.
The event is open to the public and begins at 10:40 am. on the lawn near the main gate of the Cemetery.
