Lest we Forget

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

The First World War officially ended on the eleventh hour on the eleventh day on the eleventh month, 1918 - Armistice Day. The act of a Two Minute Silence began on the anniversary of Armistice Day in 1919 by those who did not want to forget the millions killed, injured and affected.


There has been a spectacular sight at the Tower of London with a field of poppies a total of 888,246. These poppies represent a British and colonial death during World War 1.

I will be at the NEC today for the final day of the show but we will hold a one minute silence to remember them!

Thank you for your visit today.
