World of Tanks: Remembrance Day Garage

Remembrance Day is a memorial day observed in Commonwealth of Nations member states since the end of the First World War to remember the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty.

This year the celebrations mark the 100th year since the 11th November 1918 and Wargaming is planning something special too, as a sneaky garage was introduced into the game files.

A simple poppy field might look too simple but it’s more than enough. The red remembrance poppy has become a familiar emblem of Remembrance Day due to the poem “In Flanders Fields” written by Canadian physician Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae.

After reading the poem, Moina Michael, a professor at the University of Georgia, wrote the poem, “We Shall Keep the Faith,” and swore to wear a red poppy on the anniversary. The custom spread to Europe and the countries of the British Empire and Commonwealth within three years.

Remembrance Day, 11th of November, will be celebrated on a Sunday this year so we might see a very special event in the European region, celebrating the 100 years of the Great War.

  1. Do you think that they will do a mission or mini marathon for the B.B.T.Br.Panc around the 11th November since that day marks the first day of Polish independence too?

  2. I went to the vimy memorial for the 100th anniversary of vimy ridge. I think it’s really cool they added it into the garage.
