ARMISTICE DAY: November 11th 1935 marked the seventeenth anniversary of the end of the Great War. Services were held at St. Paul’s Cathedral and Westminster Abbey with large numbers of people visiting the Empire Field of Remembrance at the Abbey. Over 300,000 women set out with 40 million poppies in the hope of raising money for the Haig Fund which helped the British Legion in its work for ex-servicemen and their families.
