Typed letter announcing World War One ceasefire has been discovered

A typed order delivered to British troops announcing the First World War ceasefire has been discovered in a dusty loft - days before the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day. The official 'A' Form message written to the 59th Division announced that “hostilities will cease at 11000 today Nov. 11” and was stamped "priority".
