Agnes Cowper in Port Sunlight - 11 November, 1918

from A backward glance on Merseyside, page 108:

Suddenly after four years of hoping, yearning, watching and waiting, came the end of the war. Joy bells rang out as word went quickly around telling us that the great German war machine had collapsed and the leaders of the self-named ‘invincible’ German Army had sued for an armistice.
