Armistice day - the day World War One ended - falls on 11 November every year.

It's a day we take a moment to remember those who have fought and died in wars. A two minute silence is held at 11am.

The Royal family, important politicians and people from all over the UK take the time to gather and remember the millions of people who have fought in wars.
