Aberdare and District ARS AADARS
The callsign GB0AD is to commemorate Armistice Day on November 11th
Armistice Day is the anniversary of the symbolic end of World War I on 11November 1918. It commemorates the armistice signed between the Allies and Germany at Rethondes, 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 cease fire on the Western Front, hostilities continued in other regions, especially across the former Russian Empire and in parts of the old Ottoman Empire.
