The 11th November 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the signing of the armistice, which ended World War I. This had been the Great War, the “war to end all wars” and involved over 70 million military personnel. The war had lasted over 4 years and took a huge toll on the countries involved. Tragically 9 million were killed with a further 7 million civilians also dying in the conflict.
Every year we remember not just those who gave their lives in World War I, but anyone who has died in the line of duty. This 100th anniversary is being commemorated in many ways by many groups, and we wanted to do our bit with Armistice Run.
