Armistice Day 1918

Once again, we mark the anniversary of the 11 o'clock Armistice which ended the First World War this day in 1918. Despite the passing of time - even those of us who remember grandfathers who fought in the conflict are now in turn getting on in years - the ghastly tragedy of that insane Brothers' War still scars the collective imagination and spirit of the nations which fought it.

This little video is very different to those normally shown when WW1 is discussed. It focuses purely on the letter sent home as the war ended by one British soldier who survived, and by doing so it makes the whole thing very deeply personal. Take a few minutes to watch, listen and remember.
