On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, a great silence fell over the battlefields of the western front.
Three days earlier, in the forest of Compiegne north of Paris, a German delegation had met with the allied supreme Commander Ferdinand Foch, to carry out military negotiations. The Armistice was formally signed in Foch's railway carriage on the 11th of November 1918 at 5.10am. However, the ceasefire did not officially start until 11am that day, to allow the news to travel among the troops on the Western Front. As a result, 863 British and Empire soldiers died that morning, with the total number of deaths on the Western Front reaching 2,738.
When the news of the armistice reached London, church bells rang out and Big Ben struck the hour for the first time since the start of the war but this was also the moment for and exhausted country to reflect on the terrible conflict and unimaginable horrors that had cost so many their lives.
