I've just returned from a very moving Armistice ceremony. As it is every year. The French not only remember the dead - all the dead - from WW1 on this day but also celebrate the coming of peace.
Having recently seen "before and after" aeriel shots of both Passchendaele and Verdun curtesy of the List, I can fully understand why this is a day where business takes second place to remembrance, reflection and contemplation.
France is closed today.
