How We Remembered

Last year marked two big anniversaries - the centenary of the Royal Air Force and the centenary of the end of the First World War.

In the UK, a national programme of events was created to mark the latter, which began with more than 1,000 pipers playing the traditional Scottish lament Battle's O'er at 6am on Sunday 11th November. The traditional services of Remembrance were held before the Last Post was played at 6:55pm, followed by more than 1,000 beacons being lit. Church bells than rang out for peace in more than 1,000 places at 7:05pm to mark the conclusion of the commemorations.

Across the globe, additional events took place to mark the end of the Great War, and long-lasting tributes and memorials were erected in memory of those who gave their lives.

We've been looking at some of these tributes in our local area and thought we'd share them with you. We will add to these images as we travel around other places to find how the centenary was marked. We'd love you to share any videos or images you have of how you or your town or village marked the end of World War 1 in November last year. Please feel free to comment below or send us your videos and/or pictures to share with everyone by emailing them to
