November 11, 2018, marks the 100th anniversary of the end of The Great War

The nation will mark the end of The Great War, 100 years after hostilities ceased at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918.

At that time, an armistice came into force which brought to an end four years of fighting across many nations.

Many ceremonies will be taking place across East Devon.
