On 11 November 1918 at 11am, the guns on the Western Front fell silent after more than four years of continuous warfare.
Every year, upon the 11th hour on the 11th day of the 11th month, a minute's silence is dedicated to those who served & died fighting to protect the nation.
To honour these stories, we have highlighted a small selection of Hall of Fame inductees who served. To explore more, visit The Hall Of Fame.
The conflict had mobilised over 70 million people, left between 9 and 13 million dead.
