We remember here in Australia as well.

November 11st is our Remembrance day.  Pictured is a Flanders Poppy, symbol of the sacrifice by Aussie (and British) soldiers in Belgium & France in WW1.

The armistice was signed on 11 november 1918 in the forest at Rethonde near Compiègne. It's a 3 hour's drive from where I live.  Being a national Holiday in France as is  8 May, the armistice is celebrated in Paris and in every village in France. I made this video 2 years ago of the célébrations in my village.

I personally have a WWI souvenir. It's an (empty) British 18 pounder shrapnell bomb. The fuse is in very good condition and the rings still turn. To be efficient, the bomb should open at 6 meters above the ground. The artillery had to set the amount of seconds for the bomb to explode after it was shot.
