On 11th November 2009, Queens College observed Armistice Day. This annual event dates back to early 1920s and is held on the 11th day of November (the 11th month) at 1100 hours. It is marked by a small parade and poppy wreaths are laid between two plaques on the walls of the Assembly Hall by the youngest students accompanied by the Head and Deputy Head Prefects. The Last Post and Reveille are sounded by a Police bugler and there is 2 minutes silence. The plaques bear the names of 24 former masters and students who were killed in the two Great Wars. This year's observances were attended by the President of the Legion, Colonel Carl Morgan, Ms Luna Chung, Administrative Assistant and other Legion members.
