Remembrance Day – Welsh National War Memorial
Today is Remembrance Day, 11 November. It is a special day set aside to remember all those men and women who were killed during the two World Wars and other conflicts. Also known as Armistice Day, renamed Remembrance Day after the Second World War.
The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month marks the signing of the Armistice, on 11th November 1918, to signal the end of World War One.
The Welsh National War Memorial was erected in Cathays Park in 1928. Designed by Sir Ninian Comper, it is a circular colonnade of unfluted Corinthian columns with 3 projecting rectangular porticos. There is an inscription in English (exterior), and Welsh (interior).
