Armistice Day

Armistice Day is commemorated every year on 11 November to mark the armistice signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany at Compiègne, France at 5:45 am, for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front of World War I, which took effect at eleven o'clock in the morning—the "eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month" of 1918. But, according to Thomas R. Gowenlock, an intelligence officer with the US First Division, shelling from both sides continued for the rest of the day, only ending at nightfall.The armistice initially expired after a period of 36 days. A formal peace agreement was only reached when the Treaty of Versailles was signed the following year.
The date is a national holiday in France, and was declared a national holiday in many Allied nations. In some countries Armistice Day coincides with Remembrance Day and Veterans Day, and other public holidays. Armistice Day is not celebrated in Germany, but a German national day of mourning, Volkstrauertag, has been observed on the Sunday closest to 16 November since 1952.

Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day (sometimes known informally as Poppy Day) is a memorial day observed in Commonwealth of Nations member states since the end of the First World War to remember the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty. Following a tradition inaugurated by King George V in 1919, the day is also marked by war remembrances in many non-Commonwealth countries. Remembrance Day is observed on 11 November in most countries to recall the end of hostilities of World War I on that date in 1918. Hostilities formally ended "at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month", in accordance with the armistice signed by representatives of Germany and the Entente between 5:12 and 5:20 that morning. ("At the 11th hour" refers to the passing of the 11th hour, or 11:00 am.) The First World War officially ended with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles on 28 June 1919.




Why the Poppy

Since 1920, the red poppy has been used as a symbol of commemoration. They were the first plants to bloom in the battlefields of Northern France and Belgium.

In the folklore of soldiers, the vivid red colouring of the poppy came from the blood of their comrades soaking into the earth. The poppy flower grew rapidly and in large numbers across the graves of thousands of soldiers, leading it to become a symbol of sacrifice and loss.

It was these poppies, springing up on the battlefields, that inspired Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae to pen the most notable poem of the time, “In Flanders Fields”.

The tradition of wearing the poppy began just before the official armistice of 1918. The secretary of the American YMCA, Moina Michael, read John McCrae’s poem and was so moved by it that she decided to wear a red poppy as a personal commemorative ritual. She believed that, by wearing the poppy, she was partaking in the faith that John McCrae had spoken of in his poem. In November of 1918, the YMCA secretaries took part in a worldwide meeting, allowing Moina Michael the opportunity to discuss the poem and why she chose to wear the red poppy. Inspired, the French YMCA secretary Anna Guérun, began to sell poppies in order to raise funds for war widows, orphans, veterans and their families.

It wasn’t long before the poppy became a widely accepted symbol of remembrance throughout the allied nations. As a result, it has been worn on Armistice Day ever since. Poppies were first sold in Australia in 1921. In the lead up to Remembrance Day, they continue to be sold by the RSL in order to raise funds for veteran welfare programs.



Poppy project event - Kings park 

On the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, view more than 62,000 handcrafted red poppies on the lawns near the State War Memorial as a tribute to the 61,513 Australian lives lost in battle in World War I.

The installation, organised by the Returned and Services League of Western Australia and a number of ‘Poppy Ladies Groups’ from around WA, has been created by dozens of dedicated volunteers who have worked on this major commemorative project for much of 2018.

The full poppy display will be on view from 10 th and 11th 

A smaller display will remain in place around the Flame of Remembrance until the end of November
