The Armistice, a pact signaling the cessation of hostilities in the First World War as a precursor to peace talks, commenced at 11 am on November 11, 1918. The term "Armistice" is derived from Latin, meaning to stand (still) arms. Presently, across the United Kingdom, Armistice Day is commemorated with a Two Minute Silence at 11 am on the 11th day of the 11th month.
