When the Battle’s Over


At 06:00 – the exact time the Armistice was signed on November 11, 1918 – around 1,000 pipers around the world will fill the air with a rendition of Pipe William Robb’s evergreen retreat march, When the Battle’s O’er played at locations of their choice. Most pipers have chosen to play at churches, cathedrals, war graves and war memorials but some global locations include mountains (including Ayres Rock, Australia), the Menin Gate, Westminster Abbey and Arlington Cemetery.

Your blog-master is playing at Soldier Field in Chicago at 0600 local time
