The Armistice: 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month

Wilhelm II had just abdicated and fled to Holland. The Armistice marked the end of the fighting on November 11 at 11 o’clock in the morning. Barely two minutes before, at Ville-sur-Haine near newly-liberated Mons, the last soldier of the British forces to be killed was Canadian George L. Price.
