: Hi Bea,

: I think a lot of Commonwealth countries observe Remembrance Day in the way that you mentioned. We certainly do. In fact, I was reading on the Royal British Legion website that observance of the two minute silence has seen a big revival since 1995, with 72% of the British population observing the silence in 1998. To me, this is very encouraging.

That's very interesting. Looks like you guys are a bit ahead of us..:) I think the two minutes of silence came into effect here in Canada in 1999.Then again, I could be wrong. I also find it very encouraging that our schools are creating excellent awareness by observing Remembrance Day through a special assembly. I witnessed a very touching one yesterday. Members of the ROYAL CANADIAN LEGION were present ( including a bugler)and a classmate of my son's did a wonderful presentation by remembering his great-uncle who lost his life in France in 1944.
