This Sunday is Remembrance Sunday, and across the country people will pay their respects and honour to those who lost their lives serving their country. It also gives the public a chance to remember family and friends who lost their lives fighting in wars, and also gives people a chance to consider the cost of war.
Remembrance Sunday is always the second Sunday in November, the Sunday closest to Remembrance Day (Armistice Day)
A two minute silence is traditionally held at 11 o’clock on both Remembrance Day and Remembrance Sunday.
