Remembrance Day or Poppy Day is the day when the dead of two World Wars and other armed conflicts are remembered in the UK.
The Armistice at the end of the First World War of 1914 - 1918 was signed near Compiegne, France on 11th November 1918 at precisely 11.00 am - the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.
For this reason, Remembrance Day is on the 11th of November each year although church services and many parades are held on the Sunday nearest that date.
If you would like to take part or would like further information, please contact the RBLS Clackmannanshire & District Branch on 01259 404024.
