I have been following the blog WW1: Experiences of an English
Soldier<http://wwar1.blogspot.com/>for several months now. Following
Armistice day,  World War 1 is now
officially over and Harry has survived the hostile action.

The relative who has been posting the story and details, over 90 years later
has done a splendid job reassembling and annotating this information. I have
learned much. Please don't spoil the ending for me .. I am following the
blog to see if he can still safely make it back home. :-)

We could probably do better with the memorial service run each year at 11 am
on the 11th September. This year my students look confused with the rushed
announcement over the school PA system and again distracted by some noisy
senior students walking outside. I probably should have paid more attention
to the lead up of the announcement.

I wonder how other schools handle the events around Armistice
