On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918, an armistice was agreed to end the fighting of World War 1. The conflict, which was triggered by the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, started on 28th July 1914 and saw a staggering 8 million soldiers lose their lives and another 21 million being wounded. This Sunday, 11th November 2018, will see the centenary since the end of the Great War. Members of the Commonwealth Nations will honour the occasion with the 2 minutes silence that has been observed annually to remember all the brave service men and women who lost their lives during this conflict and in other wars since.
