Like so many people, I have my own reasons for remembering on this particular day and, this year, one song has captured the emotions of the day like no other.
If you live in the UK, you may have seen the wonderful Gareth Malone's latest efforts to get the entire country singing. For series 3, Gareth took himself down to Royal Marines Base (RMB) Chivenor, which is not too far from here, to encourage the wives and partners of the marines based there to form a choir. If you watched the first programme, earlier this week, you'll know what an emotional journey it was going to be, as the majority of their partners were about to be deployed to Afghanistan for six months. (The programme is still available online in the UK via BBC iPlayer here until 28 November.)
For their first public performance, the Military Wives Choir (or @milwiveschoir if you're looking for them on Twitter) sang a Bob Dylan classic, Make You Feel My Love, in the unlikely surroundings of Barnstaple Pannier Market.
Tomorrow, the choir will be giving the performance of which, one feels sure, they will be most proud, at the Royal British Legion's annual Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall.
As Gareth Malone says, during the programme, it doesn't really matter what you think of the military presence in Afghanistan, these women 'are incredibly stoic - they just get on with it '. And they sing their hearts out.
