Two Minute Silence

At the
eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the
eleventh month. The Two Minute Silence is observed on Armistice
Day, the day which marks the end of the First World War.

The Royal British Legion has always supported the traditional Remembrance
Sunday services and the customary Two Minute Silence on that day. As the
national custodian of Remembrance, the Legion also believes that when 11
November (Armistice Day) falls on days other than Sundays – on working days –
Remembrance should be brought into the everyday life of the nation on those days
as well.

The revival of support for observance of this demonstrates that, despite the
passing of the years and the declining number of veterans, the nation still
feels strongly about Remembrance
