Armistice Day in Le Quesnoy

An armistice brought an end to fighting in World War One on the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918.

105 years on, Le Quesnoy commemorates Armistice Day (or Remembrance Day as it is known in New Zealand) with a series of events over two days. On Friday a ceremony in the town remembered the soldiers from the town who died during the first World War. 

Then, on November 11 at 11am a procession left from the town square, walking to the Le Quesnoy New Zealand memorial, and onto the war memorial in the town for the main ceremony.
