Remembrance Day is a memorial day observed in Commonwealth member states since the end of the First World War in 1919 to honour armed forces members who have died in the line of duty.

The day is also marked by war remembrances in several other non-Commonwealth countries

A two-minute silence is observed at 11 am on November 11, the exact time when the fighting ceased during World War I to commemorate Remembrance day or Armistice day.
