First World War veteran 112, year old Henry Allingham waits for the start of Armistice day commerorations on November 11, 2008 in London. Veterans gathered at the Cenotaph for a ceremony that included a two-minute silence observed at 11.00am, the moment when the Armistice Treaty was signed by the Allies and Germany in a railway carriage in the Forest of Compiègne, France, bringing to an end four years of conflict.
