    Default November Novelties

    The puzzles in the Puzzle Boat are being solved at a rapid rate although some of the puzzles are quite time-consuming. During November I'll post a few puzzles, "novelties", which should be less time-consuming and may use some familiar ciphers. The puzzles will be in this thread and discussion in a separate thread. Creative solutions/comments are appreciated. PM your solutions to me.

    Default November Novelty 7

    Remember 11/11.

    ARMISTICE Day is the anniversary of the OFFICIAL end of World War I, NOVEMBER 11, 1918. It commemorates the armistice signed between the Allies and GERMANY at Compiegne, France, for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front, which took effect at eleven o’clock in the morning – the “ELEVENTH hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.” While this official date to mark the end of the war reflects the ceasefire on the WESTERN FRONT, hostilities continued in other regions, especially across the former Russian Empire and in parts of the old OTTOMAN Empire.

    The date was a NATIONAL HOLIDAY in many of the former allied nations to allow people to commemorate those members of the ARMED FORCES who were killed during war. After World War II, it was changed to VETERANS Day in the United States and to Remembrance Day in the British Commonwealth of Nations. Armistice Day is an official holiday in France. It is also an official holiday in Belgium, known also as the DAY OF PEACE in the FLANDERS FIELDS.

    In many parts of the world, people take two minutes of silence at 11:00 in the morning as a sign of respect for the roughly eight million who died in the war, as SUGGESTED by Edward George Honey in a letter to a British newspaper though Wellesley Tudor Pole established two ceremonial periods of remembrance based on events in 1917. Beginning in 1939, the TWO-MINUTE silence was moved to the Sunday nearest the 11th, in order not to INTERFERE with wartime production should the 11th fall on a weekday. This was stopped at some point and many people observe silences on the actual 11th.

    The following text should be in a 12 x 12 table, but I was not able to present it the way I wanted to.
