Yesterday Armistice Day was commemorated around the globe, with lots of countries and people paying their respects to those who fought for their countries and lost their lives in the First World War.
Armistice Day is recognised on the 11th November each year, with this year marking 100 years since the armistice was signed and the war proceedings started to come to a close.
But this year the occasion wasn’t just recognised in real life, but in the digital world as well, where players of Battlefield 1 held a temporary cease-fire at 11am UK time – the time at which two minutes silence are given as a sign of respect.
Although the majority of players took part in the peace, there were a couple who didn’t, but it’s still an awe-inspiring moment of recognition for the fallen soldiers.
