11 November 1918

Armistice day – end of World War I

Each year we commemorate the end of hostilities of World War I
Sikhs together with people of many nationalities come together in Ieper on the 11th of November, which was one of the main battlegrounds of World War I

This year there is no poppy parade and no gathering at the Menen Gate due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
