I am learning fast from what I can make out it is the same or very similar to our Remembrance Day in November.

Probably very much the same, if yours is all about remembering all the fallen heroes of all the wars we have had to fight--no offence, from the Revolutionary War onward! I would imagine you guys have a lot of centuries of remembering to do there in England!

We have Memorial Day on the last Monday in May to remember those who died serving our country, and Veterans' Day on November 11, to remember all veterans. The latter developed, I believe, as a result of the armistice ending WW 1 on 11/11 at 11 AM.

I love your tag line. Obviously, you are a very discerning person, as is your Labor prime minister. Thank you.
