For THOSE that do NOT understand
the UNDERLYING significance of
why 11/11, every year, is SPECIAL.

World War officially came to an end at 11 am Paris (France) time
on Monday, November 11, 1918, i.e., 11/11/1918.

“The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month”.

That was when the ARMISTICE was signed.

Hence 11/11.

This post, as with other recent related posts, at the behest of  ‘Nancy’,
the lady from Ontario Canada who sent me the original, side on, picture of the ‘Poppy Plaque’ in Thunder Bay, Ontario.

My continuing efforts, at the urging of ‘Nancy’, to accurately document as much of this history as possible.

The above BBC page has more of the Edward George Honey letter than I had in my earlier post. So that is good.

I would love to get my hands on the 7 November 1919 The Times of London with the actual proclamation.

Thank you, Nancy.
