This Remembrance Sunday, November 11th, 2018, marks the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day and the end of the First World War.
Remembrance Day is both a commemoration to those who risked their lives for their country and a celebration of peace. Like millions of other brave citizens, William Jordan 4th selflessly fought for his country in France during the First World War, with the Bedfordshire Yeomanry.
William was one of the lucky ones who returned from France with his life, but many soldiers made the ultimate sacrifice for their country and did not return home. This Armistice Day, we will remember the fallen, the injured and all the participants who risked their lives for us in war.
Jordans Mill will fall silent on the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month in order to honour those who have bravely fought for our country.
Upon entry to the café, visitors will notice our commemorative art installation which depicts the silhouettes of First World War soldiers, accompanied by poppies. This thought-provoking display has been produced in order to encourage visitors to take the time to remember the sacrifices made by the few, for the good of the many.
We will remember them #Armistice100.
