Veterans attend Commando Memorial at Spean Bridge to observe a two minute silence as a mark of respect for the war dead on November 11, 2011 in Spean Bridge, Scotland. Armistice Day traditionally marks the end of the WWI when Germany and the allied forces signed the armistice signaling the end of hostilities on the Western Front. The cessation of the war officially took effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month and is marked annually by services of remembrance for all those who have fallen in wars and a two minute silence.
