‘Remember fallen and unsung heroes’

Adorning an array of medals, Warrant Officer Frank Uys remembers the armed forces who died in the line of duty in World War 1 on Armistice Day, November 11.Armistice Day, also known as Remembrance Day and Poppy Day, is held each year on November 11 and serves to celebrate the day that the armistice was signed between Germany and the allied forces of World War 1, which officially marked the end of the war. Each Armistice Day in South Africa, the 20 million people who lost their lives in the war are remembered through minutes of silence, wearing of red poppies to signify the poppies and more. Some, like Uys, use this day to honour all South Africans who made the supreme sacrifice for their country in wars and conflict, including the struggle for democracy. PHOTO: SUPPLIED
