THIS Sunday, millions of people all over the UK will stop to remember the fallen soldiers and pay their respects to those who gave up their lives for their country.

All corners of Hampshire will pause during a two minute silence marking the centenary of the end of the First World War.

One hundred years ago, on the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month, World War One officially ended back in 1918.

The two minute silence will take place on Remembrance Sunday to pay tribute to those who lost their lives during the First World War and all of the men and women who have served since.

The first two-minute silence was held one year after the end of the First World War when King George V asked the public to observe a silence at 11am.

Earlier this year as reported by The Echo, a number of Silent Soldiers were installed around the county to mark 100 years since the end of the First World War.

The figures took the shape of a British Tommy and are to represent the 1.1 million British and Empire service men and women who died during the war.

The figures also commemorate those who returned home, but whose lives would never be the same again.

The cast iron figures are to be displayed around the county in open spaces, parks and roundabouts and will remain in place until December.
