It’s 100 years since the First World War ended. We look back
November 11, 2018, marks the centenary of Armistice Day. The day that the First World War ended will be remembered and marked around the globe.
In East Anglia, where so many families and communities had lost loved ones in the horror of what was called the Great War, there will be mass events and small, simple moments of contemplation. Gatherings at memorials, wreath laying and the sounding of The Last Post will happen as they have throughout the past century. And with them will come thoughts during the quiet minutes of silence of the sacrifice, the pain, the lasting wounds that changed people and places forever.
This month, Let’s Talk remembers the day that brought an end to those four long years of war, with reports of how the news was received in Norfolk and Suffolk, some of the ways the centenary is being commemorated and the story of one family who gave so much.
