from the Government News network: "Thursday 22 May 2008 12:00 Ministry Of Defence (National) MoD announces intent to commemorate the 90th Anniversary of the First World War Armistice Veterans Minister Derek Twigg has announced that a commemorative service and wreath laying will be held this year to mark the 90th Anniversary of the end of the First World War. Derek Twigg, Veterans Minister, said: "I am delighted to announce our intention to commemorate the 90th anniversary of the end of the First World War. I believe there is national desire to mark this important date in our history and I fully support this". Details of the event are yet to be finalised, however it is expected to be centred around a service at the Cenotaph at 11.00 on Tuesday 11 November 2008. The MoD will announce further details in the coming months. " some duplication of effort here surely if the usual Remembrance Sunday event goes ahead (which I can't see it not doing)?
