On 30th October 1918, a ceasefire ceremony took place on a British warship named Agamemnon. It's between English government representative and Ottoman Empire to end Ottoman Empire's entry in WWI.

Eventhough, the empire did stay neutral and didn't intend to involve in WWI since the end of 16th century but decided to team with Germany and involved in war on October 1914.
