The Hornsey Journal, 15th November 1918
“In loving memory of the brave heroes who gave their lives to give us peace”
The news that an armistice had been signed and hostilities with Germany would cease at 11 o’clock took Hornsey by surprise on Monday morning. Some delay in the announcement was expected owing to events in Germany and the early intimation of the glad tidings, transmitted mainly by telephone, was received with some credulity. The news seemed too good to be true.
