The anniversary of the World War One armistice, which happened 95 years ago, was marked across Europe today with a two-minute silence.

Armistice Day remembers and honours the armed forces who died in service since World War 1.

The silence is always marked on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.

This time is used because this was the time when the guns fell silent along the Western front in 1918.

World War 1 was 4 years long.
