Rod McNeil travels to Kanchanaburi to join in the services for Remembrance Day

On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, people throughout the world pause in memory of the thousands of men and women who sacrificed their lives in military service.
Remembrance Day was first held in 1919. It marks the armistice to end the First World War, which came into effect at 11 a.m. on Nov. 11, a year earlier. At a gathering in Kanchanaburi, veterans, their families and others paid tribute with two minutes of silence to the country’s fallen soldiers from all wars.
