Armistice Day Celebration

Information about Armistice Day

After four terrible years, fighting in the First World War finally ended with the signing of an armistice between Germany and the Allies on 11 November 1918. On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, the guns fell silent. New Zealanders celebrated enthusiastically, despite having recently celebrated the surrenders of the three other Central Powers – Bulgaria, the Ottoman Empire and Austria-Hungary – and the premature news of an armistice with Germany.

All members & non member, ie all public are invited to come and celebrate this important day with us at the Birkenhead RSA.
