eddie1 BS: Armistice Day 2011 (Moderated please) (41) RE: BS: Amistice Day 2011 (Moderated please) 08 Nov 11

I find it rather sad that in the UK, most of the emphasis has moved to "Remembrance Sunday".
As a small child, just after WW2 in Edinburgh, I remember cars (not too many back then!), buses, trams and indeed all road traffic in the city centre, would stop just before 11.00am. The famous "One o'clock Gun" would fire to mark the beginning and end of the 2-minute silence.

Lest we forget!
