Millions fell silent across Britain today to mark the anniversary of the day peace returned to Europe at the end of the First World War.

The agreement between Germany and the Allies took effect at the “eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” of 1918 after four years of fighting.

As the nation stopped to remember those who died in battle, the Archbishop of Canterbury, defence ministers, representatives of military associations, veterans and school children attended a service at the Cenotaph in central London to commemorate Armistice Day.

Brother Nigel Cave, the Western Front Association’s padre, led the ceremony, and wreaths were laid at the monument in Whitehall
