2018 marks 100 years since the guns fell silent on the western front, following the signing of the Armistice agreement, bringing an end to one of the most horrendous and terrible conflicts the earth had ever seen, later known as World War 1.
To mark this centenary, Ian Lavery, Member of Parliament for Wansbeck joined staff and personnel at Northumberland County Hall to lay a wreath in honour of those lost, not only in the Great War at the beginning of the last Century but in every conflict since.
Mr Lavery said; “At this time of year, but even more so on this special anniversary of Armistice, the words of that iconic poem bear even more relevance. In the going down of the sun and in the morning. We will Remember them.”
