At the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918, an Armistice was signed that ended the First World War.
New Zealand will the first in the world to mark the 100th anniversary of The Armistice, with Auckland hosting a major commemorative service at The Cenotaph on Sunday 11 November at 11am – acknowledging the time and date the guns finally fell silent.
Join us as we pay homage to those who fell during the four years of World War One. Afterwards, visit the Fields of Remembrance with 18,277 named white crosses representing every New Zealander who died.
"As long as we remember, the brave live forever."
We strongly recommend you bring water with you, wear a hat and apply sunscreen.
