100 years since Armistice Day: Australia remembers its fallen from World War I

IN a silent forest cloaked by the red of autumn, the leaders of Germany and France will this week walk together down a path between two old railway tracks.

It was here, on a misty morning 100 years ago, that the deal was signed to bring an end to World War I.

The Armistice — declaring peace at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918 — was inked in a railway carriage in the forest at Compiegne, an hour’s drive northwest of Paris.
