When the war ended people started making paper poppies to sell. Poppies raised money to help the millions of sailors, soldiers and airmen who were coming home from the war. These people are called ex-servicemen and women or veterans. On Remembrance Day, people wear a poppy and at 11 o’clock in the morning, the same time the war officially ended in 1918, there is a two minute silence. This is for people to remember all the veterans who have served their country in any war, not just the First World War.
