New Zealand has remembered Armistice Day with two minutes of silence.
Armistice Day is observed to mark the moment our World War 1 soldiers put down their weapons 100 years ago. This happened at 11am on the 11th November 1918, exactly 100 year ago.
A gun salute was held at the Wellington waterfront with soldiers firing each of the 10 cannons, stationed outside Te Papa, 10 times. The guns fell silent at 11am as they did 100 years ago.
Hundreds turned out for a service held at the Pukeahu National War Memorial Park with the Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Governor General Dame Patsy.
In Auckland, a remembrance service was held which included a fly-past by three World War 1 aircraft. Medals were also placed on the tomb, followed by a waiata and the last post to finish the ceremony.
