Remembrance Day marks the armistice agreement that ended the First World War on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918.
Each year, we pay tribute with a silence in the honour of those who fell, as well as by wearing poppies such as in these 9 retro photos from Hartlepool and East Durham.
From the Heugh Battery to the Maritime Experience and Manor College of Technology, we look at poppy scenes from the Hartlepool Mail archives.
