CENTENARY AN­NIVER­SARY

Let's Talk - - CONTENTS -

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.

Bil­let­ing - from the Armistice; Legacy of the Great War in Nor­folk ex­hi­bi­tion.

Hur­rah! The won­der­ful cel­e­bra­tions in the cen­tre of Nor­wich on Armistice Day 1918.
