Napier played its part …

Poppy fieldsOn the 11th hour of the 11th day in the 11th month of 1918, the armistice was signed between Germany & the allied forces, thus bringing The Great War (WW1) to an end. It was called the war to end all wars & was a bloody trench warfare in which millions of soldiers & civilians alike lost their lives. Armistice Day & Remembrance day overlap on the 11th of November.

“Lest we forget the ultimate sacrifice made by so many so that we may have the liberty which we have today. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we shall remember them.”
