Armistice Day

The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month marks the signing of the Armistice to signal the end of World War One “the War to end all Wars”, on the 11 November 1918.

As in previous years, the occasion will be celebrated with a short ceremony at the lobby of Parliament House. At this location, memorials are found commemorating the names of those Gibraltarians who lost their lives in the Wars. The two-minute silence will be marked by the firing of a gun by the Royal Gibraltar Regiment at 11.00 hrs. Buglers will then sound the Last Post and wreaths will be laid.
