  3. 3. Welcome Page Welcome to my power-point on Remembrance Day. I hope that you are going to enjoy this presentation because it will show you what happens today in wars across Afghanistan & World War 1 and World War Ii. I hope that you enjoy it. Yours sincerely Tom Oates
  4. 4. Facts on World War I & II and other wars. In 1914 a war started in France & Belgium and it lasted 4 years until the Armistice on 11th November 1918. 750 million people lost their lives in that war. In 1939 a second war broke out and 125 million people died. This war was under Hitler. Britain Won And Hitler Didn’t. In 2011 wars still carry on in Afghanistan.
  5. 5. The Cenotaph Every year a service is held in Whitehall London. This ceremony happens near to the Cenotaph. After they have had a minute silence the Queen lays the first wreath on the Cenotaph and they have a march around London.
  6. 6. The Royal British Legion. The money from all your poppies that you buy goes to people who have lost people in the war or if the soldier who has been injured can get fit again. Some reasons what events they do. Every year they do a remembrance festival at the Royal Albert Hall and the annual poppy appeal.
  7. 7. Remembrance Sunday Remembrance Sunday is held in The UK in November to the nearest Sunday by the 11th of November. Special services are held in Churches or memorials over Britain.
  8. 8. Remembrance Day Remembrance Day began on the 11 of November 1918. It was to recall the ending of the first World War. It formally ended at the 11th hour, 11th month and 11th day. On Friday 11th Of November 2011 we remember the servicemen who had died in wars. The Reason why we where a poppy is that their was not anything left over than the poppys that grow every year which brought hope.
