Armistice Day marked in si­lence

- Germany

In com­mem­o­ra­tion of the sign­ing of the Armistice with Ger­many on Novem­ber 11, 1918 all work and lo­co­mo­tion ceased for a pe­riod of two min­utes yes­ter­day. Linked with the

rest of the Em­pire, Dunedin ob­served this trib­ute of si­lence. The peo­ple in the streets re­mained un­cov­ered, and the var­i­ous shops and busi­ness houses closed their doors. On the var­i­ous public build­ings and busi­ness premises flags were flown, wreaths were placed on the Fallen Sol­diers’ Memo­rial at the Oval, and spe­cial ref­er­ence was made to the day in many of the schools.
