Thousands of bells across the World will ring in unison on ‘Remembrance Day’ to mark the 100th anniversary of the armistice that ended the First World War in 1918. Churches, cathedrals, fire stations, town halls and military bells will be rung in honour in an unprecedented commemoration.

‘Remembrance Day’ is celebrated on November 11 each year to commemorate the official end of hostilities during World War I at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.

After more than four years of bitter fighting, Allied forces finally broke stubborn German resistance and forced Germany to sue for peace.

‘Remembrance Day’ is a day for the nation to remember and honour those who have sacrificed themselves to secure and protect freedom.

One year later the first commemorations to remember the end of World War I were held across the Commonwealth on the 11th November 1919.

At the request of King George V the people of the empire ceased work at 11am to hold a two minute vigil to remember the fallen. This vigil would evolve into the minute’s silence of today’s Remembrance Day services.

On and on
You’re told which side you’re on
You’re forced you’re thrown
To become the scythe to cut the cornAnd all your friends they ride into the sunset
Fly into the sunset and away they go
All your friends they ride into the sunset
Fly into the sunset and away they’re thrown
Into the fireTen below
The call comes on the radio
Over you go
And the red now all the rivers flow, the poppies grow

All your friends they ride into the sunset
Fly into the sunset and away they blow
And all your friends they ride into the sunset
Ride into the sunset and they’re taken home
Open fire
Open fire

Open fire
Open fire
Open fire
Just to ride and fire
