In Commonwealth countries yesterday it was Remembrance Sunday (or, Poppy Day) - a day where we remember all the members of the armed forces who lost their lives in the line of duty.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
