Armistice Day marks the day World War One ended, at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month, in 1918. A two-minute silence is held at 11am to remember the people who have died in wars.

The Armistice has a special significance this year, as it marks 100 years since the end of WW1. Communities across the United Kingdom are thinking about the centenary of the end of WW1 and how they can commemorate and bring people together.

This award scheme will help communities to access silhouettes for benches and chairs that bring to mind those who went to war and did not return.

These silhouettes can bring a community together through an event, to remember, and to think about the Armed Forces Community today. You can find out more about the silhouettes at

The Armed Forces Covenant Fund will make awards to community organisation who need help to obtain silhouettes. Organisations can apply for up to 10 silhouettes. As part of the award, your organisation will need to hold a self-funded event to bring your local community together. You can apply between 1st - 30th June 2018.

The application form should be available on the Armed Forces Covenant Fund's website from 1st June 2018.
