It usually comes on a sunday where most of the memorials take place.

We'll be doing it again on the 11th.

Veteran's Day isn't until Wednsday, but there's absolutely nothing wrong with honoring and remembering on any day.

Veterans Day for us, and in the U.S. it's always just on the 11th, Armistice Day.

EDIT:
Wikipedia wrote:Remembrance Day – also known as Poppy Day, Armistice Day (the event it commemorates) or Veterans Day – is a day to commemorate the sacrifices of members of the armed forces and of civilians in times of war, specifically since the First World War. It is observed on 11 November to recall the end of World War I on that date in 1918.

I was not trying to start an arguement, bilco, only to note that there are differences. After all, you did say "or the yanks".
I am aware that Remembrance and Veteran's days are not the same, though they honor the same thing.
The main point of my earlier post was the second part.

In NZ we have ANZAC day.
I wounder how many people know of the ANZACs, most probably nobody else besides the Aussies, Kiwis, Terks and possibly Canadians?

All they ever did that was ever memorable was the Gallipoli Campaign, which was just fucked up due to the Crappy British planning and in particular Winston Churchill. Although TBH it wasn't solely Churchills fault, although he does generally get given most of the blame. It was all just fucked up and a shit load of people died, it was a slaughter for the terks.

Churchill wasn't happy with how the operation went, as he had little control over it. It was one of the mostly costly mistakes as his early career.

Yeah we lost thousands there, British and Austrailian.
