On This Day

11th November

1918 - On the 11th hour of the 11th Day in the 11th month the Armistice that officially ended the First World War was declared.


2005 - Lord Lichfield, the Royal photographer died at the age of 66 after suffering a major stroke.

(Apart from being an excellent photographer he endeared himself to me by using a whistle to keep the Royal Family in order when taking the photographs at Charles and Diana's wedding - I am sure that he and Diana will have a few interesting words to say to each other.)
