The Armistice of 11 November 1918 was the armistice that ended fighting on land, sea and air in World War I between the Allies and their opponent, Germany.

We also remembered more recent victims of the troubles including many friends and fellow comrades.

The soldier, above all other people, prays for peace, for he must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war. The brave may not live forever, but the cautious do not live at all. The brave die never, though they sleep in dust: Their courage nerves a thousand living men.
