ABC WEd: Rememberance Day

On the 11th hour, on the 11th day of the 11th month, we will remember them. Remembering all those who lost their lives and health in World War I,

My overseas guest like to go to the Singapore Kranji memorial. I always take them when they ask to go.

Remembrance Day (also known 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. The day, specifically designated by King George V on 7 November 1919,[1] or alternative dates, are also recognised as special days for war remembrances in many non-Commonwealth countries. Remembrance Day is observed on 11 November to recall the end of hostilities of World War I on that date in 1918. wiki

Now I have got to know Larry Wong, Curator of the Chinese Canadian Military, I feel more passionate about this day.
