Limited Edition: 50 copies Worldwide.
Notes: The first Armistice Day was held at Buckingham Palace, commencing with King George V hosting a Banquet in Honour of the President of the French Republic during the evening hours of 10 November 1919.
The first official Armistice Day events were subsequently held in the grounds of Buckingham Palace on the morning of 11 November 1919, which included a two-minute silence as a mark of respect for those who died in the war and those left behind.
This would set the trend for a day of remembrance for decades to come.
