Remembrance services are to take place across northern Lincolnshire next week to remember the casualties of conflicts past and present.
Remembrance Day was first observed in 1919 in Britain and its empire territories. It was originally called Armistice Day, to commemorate the armistice that came into effect at 11am on November 11, 1918.
This year’s Royal British Legion poppy appeal was launched in Freshney Place on October 30, with speeches from organisers and wreath laying from Deputy Mayor Cllr Steve Beasant
The tradition of wearing a poppy started in 1920 inspired by the poem ‘In Flanders Fields’ written by Canadian physician Lieutenant John McCrae in 1915. Since the 1990s, a two minute silence has been held nationwide, regardless of the day of the week November 11 falls on.
